    I used to be, until I found out you aren't a real Rangers fan if you root against Tampa.

    Hey, I wanted and picked the Jets since early season. We all have to sacrifice. Think of it this way --- If they win the Cup this year, next year you can root for them to have the greatest collapse off all-time. They miss the playoffs giving us potentially 2 lottery shots at the next great one.

    This is the most suited Caps team for the playoffs I've seen but I can't see them getting past the stacked Lightning. TBL in 6.

    Strategically? Yes. In reality? I don't care. Like, the fan in me wants to see Vegas or Winnipeg win. Even Washington. I'd love to see Ovie win.

    TBL in 7 just because of the pick or I'd go with the Caps. I do believe this is going the distance

    I don’t really care, but I’m pulling for the Caps. But a Bolts win helps the Rangers more.

    It took me about a sixteenth of a second to be sure I could not root against Girardi, Mc D., Stralman, Miller, Cally, etc.

    How could it not. Stralman alone is motivation. Many of these guys laid it all out for the Rangers and we rooted hard for them. To boot, I finally bought property on the Gulf and get to see Tampa enough to enjoy the Gulf Coast Rangers. They play a fun, fast brand of hockey. Plus, there is some Ranger pride, when socializing down there.

    Then there is that small matter of another 1st round pick. This may be the first time the Rangers actually have a rooting interest in a playoff we are not in. Are you not hardcore? How is this even a question? Almost all the viable top 9 forwards or top 4 D are gone in the first 35 to 40 picks, every draft. Tampa winning gives the Rangers an additional key ELC versus a longshot lottery ticket.

    1/16th of a second, 1/16th. Giacomin, not even long enough to have a concrete “Poor Ovi,” thought, lol.

    Heck I might have been one of the first on this site to call em the Rangers South quite some long time ago, now. I don’t track these things, though.
