What Do You Think: The Rangers

Tomorrow, the Devils have another opportunity to strengthen their hold on the Atlantic Division.  They get an opportunity to keep another Atlantic Division team down.

But most importantly, it's the last game at the Rock between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers.

The New York Rangers who didn't figure out defensive systems until after the lockout.

The New York Rangers whose penchant for signing big names help contribute to that second lockout and their futile season.

The New York Rangers who still continue this practice with Scott Gomez ($8 million this year), Chris Drury ($7.1 million this year), and Wade Redden ($6.5 million this year) - all for less than expected results.

The New York Rangers who just retired the number of a player who has never scored more than 80 points and has only one major career achievement.  (Bonus career stat comparison!  And this guy isn't going to have his number retired!)

The New York Rangers who still keep living that same achievement, their one Stanley Cup in 1994, over and over and over again.  Presumably because they have no faith it'll ever happen again, perhaps.

The New York Rangers whose fanbase only makes any noise when their team does anything positive and absolutely silent when they are losing.

The New York Rangers who may believe that the return of a locker room cancer  will help them out.  A player who has never scored more than 20 goals in a season, and isn't going to boost the second least productive offense in the league (2.4 goals for per game!).

I believe all New Jersey fans, on one level or another, cannot stand the Rangers and love it when the Devils beat up on them.  So I ask you: What do you think of the Rangers?  Do you despise them? Hate them? Desire to see them lose in miserable fashion?

Please keep the language clean, but also, be brutal.
