I dislike them so much I'm almost at the point where I wouldn't mind if they lost their team. A year or two ago I wouldn't even dream of it.
Let's face it, the Devils were never very fun to hate. In fact I don't think the words Devils and fun belong in the same sentence, in any context. But it's an obligation to hate them and beating them is always great.
There's a lot of history in the Rangers rivalry and I can't wait for them to get better and hopefully replace the ****birds. They're fun to hate even when they're beating us so they're my favorite rivalry. They're a real team with real fans. I can hate their guts while grudgingly respecting them on some level.
The level of hatred has always been the same for me for the Rangers for 30 plus years. I have always hated them. But like you, I have a certian amount of respect. grudgingly as you put it is how I feel.
I can talk to Ranger fans for the most part. Most of the ones I know are cool and I can talk to.
Penguin fans, a good portian of them anyway you cant even talk to.
