    Family Matters

    We spend too much time dealing with the
    Rangers. That means the same for our families.

    Which players do your family members love or hate?

    My parents love any small guys, as I was a smaller player. Zuccarello can don no wrong.
    My dad hates the “slow puck hog” Hayes.
    My nephew is obsessed with Georgiev. He loves goalies, so this came naturally.

    My wife hates Strome. I’m not sure why.

    My mom loves Zucc, Hank, and Big Dick Rick...and anyone "cute," and she loves most eastern European players cause she just does. No reason. No hockey reason. Just cuase.
    My dad watches the players' skates when I make him watch hockey and comments about how great they are at skating.

    My wife loves Zuccarello and Lundqvist. She hates when I knock on either of them even when it is deserved from poor play.

    My cousin loves Kreider.

    Nobody in my family likes hockey. You guys are my hockey family, hell even Phil too.

    (Just kidding Phil.)

    My girlfriend would leave me for Hank in milliseconds. She wants to lick him.

    Other than that she just identifies with who she knows; Staal, Zuccarello and Kreider. The rest have all left but she thinks they still play for us .

    Anyone play the numbers game with their wife/partner/girlfriend? Back in the SC run mine did pretty good. Probably could guess at least 50%+. For example, who wears 16..."Avery"...correct etc. Same as naming the nicknames of North American sports teams. Apparently I have trained her well and watch a lot of sports.

    My wife tried hard to remember all of the players one season, then half were gone the following season. She hasn’t tried since. She still thinks Ovechkin and Kovalchuk played for the Rangers, as she heard those names constantly [on tv]

    Wife loves Zucc and Hank (go figure). Brother loves tougher players (he grew up watching with me, so he inherited the same affinity for violence).

    They're the only two in my family who "care" about hockey.

    My wife loves Lundqvist(I see a trend with this). My 8 year old likes Zuccarello and Hank, he loves to play forward and goalie, and loved Stepan. My 4 year old likes Zuccarello and Skjei, but only because his cousin is named Brady.

    My lady companion has a friend named Chris Kreider, so #20 is her favorite player. She looks up and actually watches when Sam says his name. My two Golden Retrievers are big on Ranger, the service puppy in training. When they did a between periods profile on Ranger, they got excited and started barking. The TV is near a window so they went to the window looking for him outside, thinking he was on the other side of the TV.

    My GF back in the day was into mythology and took a special liking to Ty Domi because she thought he looked like a gnome.

    GF loves Zib and Zuc. Hates Hayes, says he sucks based on like a 5 min span that she watched once last season.
