Isn't there a Rangers forum where all the Rangers fans can talk about all the great Rangers dynasties? Oh, that's right, there were none.

That's why they are Ranger fans and not hockey fans..When their one and done playoff series ends they instantly become Yankee fans. Witt is an ultimate player who in one game blocks more shots and has more hits than Leecthie in his entire career!!!

Nah, it's probably because your an insecure little whing crybaby who knows squat about hockey. Pretty simple.

Scott: I graciously accept your nomination. I've battled a lot through my injuries,(a bruised ego & damaged pride), and worked hard all season. My 8 goals in 70 games proves that! Why if not for the 255 players ahead of me with more goals, I'd be leading the league! Didn't Milt Schmidt lead the league with 8 goals back in 1925? I'm right there!

These Rag fans are just a bit jealous because even though the Isles are pretty much done, they still have a D man who's not afraid to block shots and get physical.

I'm with Scott. I nominate Hilbert Hears a Who. 8 goals is enough to get a promotion to the first line. While I admire Witt for playing through injuries, he should take the rest of the year off now that the Isles are out of it. Also, Islander fans should worry about their own team, not what the Rangers are doing. I have been a long supporter of the Islanders. While I do dislike the Rangers, I do respect their talent and envy the fact that their fourth line is alot better than our first line. We need to focus on Nassau (Brooklyn in 5 years) not Manhattan.

Theres no islander forum where islander fans can talk about all the great islanders dynasties either. There was only one good islander team.

There also isnt a forum where the islanders fans can talk about hope for the present or future

Or a forum where islanders fans can talk about the playoffs, or good goaltending, or great young players in the minors.

But their is a forum where islanders fans can cry and moan about how horrible their team is

By the way, the only hockey team that has been consistantly one and done has been the islanders. Do you even bother thinking before you speak or is your brain still getting warmed up in the morning

hmm jealous of being out of the playoffs with a worthless defenseman who cant even enforce properly,

or fifth seed 3 out of first hottest team in hockey with the best young defenseman in the game.

Yeah you hit that one right in the head.

Witt should have stayed home till it heals, and coacheese should give another d-man a chance. Witt is not a reliable defenseman when healthy, let alone injured.
