Go Rangers?

Mostly because I want the Kings to win over the Yotes, and a New York-LA Finals could be fun.

I wish DJ Porter would make one of these about Datsyuk.

Should be a doozy. :thumbup:

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

NY-LA would help the NHL. Both are huge markets who don't get enough exposure due to their cities' Baskeball, Football and Baseball teams.

I think the 9 and 10 EST start times in the LA-PHO series will kill the tv ratings. NJ-NYR should draw a solid market though.

This series is going to be a bloodbath.

Rangers in 6. Mostly because I am not a Devils fan or a Brodeur fan.

Hear me now and believe me later, the Devils win this in SIX games.

I posted my long blathering take on the series on my craptastic infotainment blog ( http://jerseycitydes...-1-tonight.html ) but in a nutshell, if the Rangers can't forecheck the Rangers got nuthin. Once the Devils hit the shutoff valve on the Florida powerplay there hasn't really been an area they've struggled in. They're faster, they have more scoring depth up front and yes, guys who can create shots when the Broadway Blues pack it tight unlike most of the Sens and Caps.

Unlike many the Devils aren't intimidated by MSG. It is an entire franchise and fanbase built on hating the Rangers. It is. There is a guy who whistles at set intervals at the Prudential Center and ends with the old cavalry shrill Da da da duh da da RANGERS SUCK (and they've added Flyers swallow to that ditty after the Rangers part, classy bunch that they are). The Rangers could be playing in Vancouver and yet they'll be chanting Rangers suck in Newark. Remember how we Wings fans used to laugh at the Nordilanche fans in Denver while playing Phoenix would chant "Red Wings suck"? Devils players and fans are not intimidated by the Rangers but they do have one unhealthy obsession with them.

Yes Lundqvist is better (Though Brodeur has a 2.05 GAA which isn't horrid) but he will need to be. He also gets peeved and you at times can get in his head. Nothing phases Brodeur, I'm convinced of this. He looks the exact same getting shelled as posting a 40 save shutout.

Yeah, I said it, Tony Soprano whacks Phil Leotardo once more. Every game is sold out but I'm going to go Saturday afternoon with second row seats in the corner to Brodeur's right (1st and 3rd). I can't wait. When you can't have the Wings this far away nasty rivalries like this must do.

Rangers in 7.

The Devils impressed me with the way they've beat Philly,but the Rangers did find the solution for good offense(Sens)and good defensive system(Caps)

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
