just to correct a gramatical mistake above so you don't avoid the question i posed, it should read "Do you deny you and every ranger fan chants potvin sucks?"

Fruitcake? You proved my last point with that. All you rags think the same.
DP wins games for us. Queenie loses them for you guys. Nice job getting embarassed tonite against Montreal. How'd you possibly lose that, when you had such a nice start in the game???? You guys are pathetic. All the rags do is underperform. you added two premium centers in the offseason, and still sit at the number 6 slot in the conference.Losers. No wonder it took you 80+ years just to win 4 cups. LOL
why don't you go hang yourself from the mosoleum rafters ?

I think its about time that us Islander fans start doing the same Potvin Sucks chant, with the same intro, but change Potvin to Messier.

its the little brother complex....big brother gets all the girls (much larger fan base) all the attention (one cup in 94 got more media attention than 4 in a row ) with the nice car (MSG compared to the worst arena on the planet) has more money (wang is a cheapskate....they cry all the time that he doesnt pay for free agents to better the team, yet make fun of the rangers hippocritically)

etc....You cant blame them. Then again you can, since these are the same fans who cant even bother to go root for their team. They are front runners.

But its ok, because they can watch the underachieving rangers in the playoffs this year, while the overachieving islanders can wax dp's award for another year not in the top 10 of NHL goalies...

Heatly and Luongo anyone?

Now thats a bad organization

With sutton out 4-6 weeks...our "D" has trickled down...maybe we do have to rent-a-player on the "D" now. Besides that we are honestly going to be physically outmatched due to a toughness element. We have no tough guy in the line-up...forget about Simon if he even plays a game again...this is the same problem we had several years ago and was addressed with Asham and Wiemer being picked up...its just a thought.

Take out the 400 section of the new car (MSG) and the amount of people that acutally root for the Rags would still be less than an empty night at the coliseum. Good job by "King Swiss Cheese" last night to hold onto that 5 goal lead and then get faked out his jock in the shootout, top 10 goalie indeed. An original six team and 2 cups to show for it, now that's something to be proud of.(Four in a row and a dynstay- I am sure that got no media coverage) All that money the Rags spent over the years really paid off too huh? What do you have to show for it? A second round exit in the playoffs last year and a washed up Jagr with green shoelaces? Who could want anything more out of a organization like the Rangers?

Not as bad as the Rags who do not look like they will make the playoffs. After their offseason pickups, there is no excuse. Either Renney (can't get a team of allstars to produce) or Sather (can't put a team together that can play together) should be fired. As far as a complex, the Rags have never had a great team...

The corporate argument? I am sure thats why our arena actually gets loud...all those crazy lawyers making noise. Oh yeah and all our jerseys being sold, its new court attire. Finally, the ratings uhhh yeah you cant even come up with something for that

by the way at least get it right, we have 4 cups. We have also had multiple good teams. What hope do you have, only one combination of players in your entire history has ever won the cup. Its ok though rangers cant win it every year, and the years they dont I am sure all you islander fans throw your parade. Nothing to root for in the masoleum

We are currently sitting in 6th place of the eastern conference, and have been pretty consistant in getting wins up after a bad december...We lost a game last night and got a point...how does that mean rangers dont look like they are making the playoffs..You either cant add, read or know nothing about hockey. TYPICAL ISLANDER FANS- they know more about the rangers than the game itself
