I've been a season ticket holder for the Rangers for three years. What would make you think I was ever a fan of a lost team?

I would not doubt that Lime was an islander fan lat season. Probably a bandwagoner
Yeah, I would not doubt that you were adopted either. Rangers fans aren't bandwagoner fans like the Ice Prancers. As soon as the Isles entered their glory days, bandwagoners who didn't even know the NHL existed, flocked in. As soon as they lost, everyone was gone like a fart in the wind.

Now, that fart (the Islanders) are stinking up the whole NHL.

I'm a Leafs fan. And this is the first year I can say that I hate my team. I love the Leafs but hate the players on it. So I'm hoping for losses and a dead last finish and a crack at the first overall draft pick.

So go Rangers, Go Islanders, Go Devils, Go everybody!!!! And please beat my Leafs. Screw the cup. Its only going to a hockey ht bed anyway like Louisianna or Mississippi. Bring on the draft.

In case you werent aware the isles are currently last in the standings. Usually playoff contending teams get band wagoners not teams fighting for the #1 pick in the draft. So that made no sense. But for some reason Im not suprised.#2 That "fart" as you stated played very good against you last night for an "AHL" team. If you guys think your going anywhere in the playoffs your crazy you will be one and done.

What made no sense is you not being able to read the - plain as day qualifier "as soon as the Islanders entered their glory days" as the period when they had bandwagoners....

So let's see, the Boston Bruins, the Conference leader with 70 points and 33 wins, just barely squeaked by the Islanders last night 2-1. Boston - a team with 159 goals - 2nd only to Detroit (161)

I suppose they should pack it in because they could only score two against your AHL team right?

No I didnt say that did I? You assumed I said that but in reality I said that you guys always say how much we suck and that were an AHL team and crap and how you guys are going to do really good in the playoffs. However if the same team that showed up tues shows up in the playoffs you will be lucky to get out of the first round because you were lucky to beat the "AHL" team with their third string goalie.

So the Bruins will be knocked out of the first round as well? Do you people actually use your brains before you type? or are you filled with so much hate and envy that you'll type any gibberish to get a jab at the Rangers?
