Hard for me to fight Pale Face Rangers when they have many Wompom to spend. My warriors can't compete playing hockey in inferior Tee-pee in Uniondale. No suites for Big Chief to drink fire water and make more beads and hides to support my tribe. Me want to get in trade Tonto from Lone Ranger's. Hi Ho Jim Neilson....away!!!!!

It's a Salary Cap league. Enough with the money to spend thing.

Also heard "We Want Fishsticks" chant. One season with my picture on the front of the jersey and it will live on forever.

Islanders: predicted to finish 5th in the atlantic.

Strangers: predicted to be stanley cup finalists.

who's living up to their expectations?

Strangers took 60 games to play like a team and now hang precariously just above the playoff cut-off. winning streaks are usually followed by the strangers upcoming losing streak. think this team of me-me-me's will play like a team against the eastern conferences top "teams" or will they fold against the likes of carolina or washington. take care ya'll, I'm out for the rest of the day!

Look on the bight side. You still have a very good shot to win the Hummer metro ice challenge.

I heard more Isles chants on Tuesday night. Yes, the fans of the team winning were louder both nights. What is your point?

False. Never heard an Islander chant Tuesday night not being overtaken by a Rangers chant

If Rangers fans care more about winning the Stanley Cup than winning the season series vs. the Islanders then don't come on to the forum Islander bashing. Start worrying about how you play against the Devils, Canadiens, Senators, Penguins and Hurricanes.

If you want to continue Islander bashing, then at least admit these games are important to you...Isles have your number this year so far regardless of what the standings say

Frank. You didn't hear more isles chants on tuesday. There were 1000 isles fans in the arena, tops. I am being generous. You have to admit, there were as many ranger fans in there as isles fans last night. You guys played like crap and it showed. As far as the rangers not contending for the finals as lake county said, the frankly have the best record in the east against the east. They are four points out of first with a game in hand on the pens and habs and the only reason they aren't running away with it is due to their crap tastic record against the west. As far as that ted nolan comment up the page, the rangers spend as much as anyone else in the salary cap league. This isn't 2003-2004 anynmore. And by the way Ted Nolan, your Native American speak is not how you really talk so i am thinking your being impersonated by a straight up racist.

Rangers vs. Devils...5-0
Rangers vs. Canadiens..3-0-1
Rangers vs. Carolina....2-1-1
Rangers vs. Penguins....3-1-1
Rangers vs. Senators...1-3 (would love to play them now in a series instead of four times by dec. 23 when they were lights out.

The Rangers are 4 points out of first and 6 points ahead of 9th. They are closer to the top than out of the playoffs. Everyone's position is precarious. Try again.

I hear the Isles were so pumped for this because the winner was going to give the losers hummers.
