OP comes in peace and we can appreciate that and he seems like a good chap. And though it is very odd to read anything positive about a Flyer/Ranger alignment and I do agree the phlemn is starting to build up, lets get totally totally honest here and read between the lines here.
This has nothing to do with a Flyer fan thinking we are on similiar situations and there is some empathy for us and all this "we shall overcome" stuff is for the most part BS. Sorry but this Ranger fan still harbors years and years of hatred for Flyers pretty much from the day Dave Schultz beat the **** out of timid Dale Rolf back in a 1974 playoff matchup for no reason other than he was Dave Schultz and amazingly no Ranger came to Rolfe's defense. Years of therapy have not helped in this hatred for the Flyers....lol
Seriously, ONLY reason any Flyer fan would root for the Rangers right now in our series is cause they HATE and I do mean HATE with a passion, the Penguins even more than they hate the Rangers. I have buds who live in down in Philly and there is no question about this.
So we are the lesser of the two evils....that my friends is it in nutshell!
