The Rangers' greatest rival today
 
There are those teams with well-known rivals: Vancouver has Chicago, Calgary and Edmonton (in that order) while Montreal has Boston (and, to a lesser extent, Philadelphia and Toronto).

Now, who would you consider the Rangers' greatest rivals today?

It's the Devils for me. The Flyers and Penguins are a close second.

Poozer 07-01-2011 08:55 AM

Until Brodeur hangs up his skates, its the Devils.

After that.. its likely still the Devils but perhaps with realignment things could change. Rangers-Bruins games are always 1-0 nail biters.

Our biggest rival on July 1 of most other years has been Glen Sather

For me, the the Devils x100. Always has and always will.

Devils
Flyers (after experiencing their fanbase in person, they've moved above the Pens for me)
Penguins
Islanders

For me it's been the Islanders. Lately most have said it's the Devils -- but soon enough they'll be hating the Islanders more again.

traditionaly, Devils/Isles.

since the lockout, I'd say Philly, Caps, & Guins have been some of the most competative & emotional games we play all season.

pld459666 07-01-2011 09:09 AM

Growing up in Hells Kitchen, it has been and always will be the Islanders.

Nothing has changed in my mind.

Each and everytime we beat them I laugh a little hardier and each and every time we lose, I kick and Islanders fan that much harder.

Cryers 2nd, Debbies 3rd

Mathradio 07-01-2011 09:21 AM

For me it has always been the Philadelphia Cheesepuffs (Flyers) first, among the Devils, the Islanders and the Flyers.

Vitto79 07-01-2011 09:26 AM

well everyone in the division really

Devils
Isles
Flyers
Pens

that's my order. Isles are always going to be there regardless of how good they are. Devils are #1 though

From 1926 through the 70's its the Bruins.

80's Islanders.

90's Devils.

Flyers always close behind.

rickyrod 07-01-2011 10:53 AM

Still the Isles for me. Rangers-Devils games are more often than not boring as hell. Flyers probably ahead of the Devils.

I fixed that up for you.

Devils for me. Been to a bunch of Rangers-Devils games and I always get riled up, even though I'm usually a pretty calm guy.

The Devils' fanbase numbers have declined since they failed to make the playoffs. This is why they have lowered in my list below the team itself:

Flyers
Devils
Islanders
Penguins
Devils fans

devils... mainly because of Fatso, flyers/isles a close second and then penguins..caps.

lmao i was just thinking this. true story.

NYRKING30 07-01-2011 12:07 PM

rangers-caps the rivalry will continue to grow. imagine if we were playing boston 6x a year.

DekeR 07-01-2011 12:15 PM

It's the NYR's.

Thordic 07-01-2011 12:22 PM

They still have plenty of obnoxious fans here in Jersey, they just dont go to games.

Machinehead 07-01-2011 12:24 PM

1)Penguins
2)Flyers
3)Devils
4)Sabres

Rangers have multiple rivals. Always have, always will. #1 depends on who you ask.

Kreider 07-01-2011 12:43 PM

Cap space

rickyrod 07-01-2011 12:48 PM

Philly just jumped up a few notches in hate for overpaying for Jags.

WhipNash27 07-01-2011 01:03 PM

Today? Sather
Normally, I still say the Islanders. Once they're good again, it'll really take off like the old days.
