I'm not gonna go out and proclaim victory when the series hasn't started yet, but I just want the Devils to absolutely destroy and bury those fools. I've talked about ruthless aggression often enough, so let's find out if our team really has it in them.

I'm already tired of all of my friends who are Rangers fans. Here's a quote from one:

"The Devils are thanking God almighty right now that they can make some money from Ranger fans buying tickets for MSG East."

I want to crush these fvcking douchebags and remind them that they haven't won sh!t yet and deserve no respect.

I have a bad feeling about this.

I just hope I'm wrong

I, actually, feel pretty good about this.

I think the Devils' aggressive forecheck will cause all sorts of problems for the Rangers' collapsing system.

They can try and put 5 guys between the D and the goalie and clutter the slot all they want. But at least 2 or 3 Rangers will have to commit deep to fight the Devils' cycle. That should open up some space and create opportunities

Maybe inform this directionally inept Rangers fan that Prudential Center is located approximately 6 miles to the WEST of Madison Square Garden?

Yeah, picking them out of the playoffs and to lose in the first two rounds didn't work out for him.

FYI, I said there were 8 teams who played 14 playoff games in the first 2 rounds and advanced, but it's only 7. They are a combined 11-28.

What kind of seeding did those teams come in with? I feel like that sounds more like the story of some underdog team that scrapped its way to 1st and 2nd round victories than a President's Trophy contender battling with teams that maybe should have been much inferior to them.

2010 Canadiens: 8 (19th in NHL in points)

2009 Hurricanes: 7 (11th in NHL in points)

2003 Wild: 7 (10th in NHL in points)

2002 Maple Leafs: 4 (2nd in NHL in points)

2002 Avalanche: 3 (5th in NHL in points)

1993 Maple Leafs: 3rd in Norris Division (Divisional Playoffs - 8th in NHL in points)

1990 Blackhawks: Norris Division Champion (6th out of 21 in NHL in points)

I don't think the seeding matters all *that* much - I agree that the Rangers haven't been that substantially outplayed in either series, not like 2010 Montreal or (probably) the 2003 Wild.

2010 Canadiens: 8 (19th in NHL in points) 4-1 vs 7th seed Philly

2009 Hurricanes: 6 (11th in NHL in points) Swept vs 4th seed Pitt

2003 Wild: 6 (10th in NHL in points) Swept vs 7th seed Ducks

2002 Maple Leafs: 4 (2nd in NHL in points) 4-2 vs 3rd seed Carolina

2002 Avalanche: 3 (5th in NHL in points) 4-3 vs 1st seed Detroit

1993 Maple Leafs: 3rd in Norris Division (Divisional Playoffs - 8th in NHL in points) 4-3 vs 3rd Symthe

Los Angeles

1990 Blackhawks: Norris Division Champion (6th out of 21 in NHL in points) 4-2 vs 2nd Smythe 90pts Edmonton Oilers

some additional info....5 of the 7 lost the 1st game in the series which if we're hoping for the rangers to be worn out it would make sense that game 1 should present an advantage

on the bad side most of these teams were the lower seed or had less pts 5 of 7

i'm hoping that the rangers are still feeling pain come mon...feeling nervous
