Yes, Potvin is a jerk, and yes, it was fun to say when I was a kid, but now I feel differently about it.
To start, the Islanders are terrible, and it doesn't feel the same.
Most importantly, although Potvin's cheapshot blew our chances that year, I still feel that the chant is a great example of "sour grapes" turned tradition.
The Islanders, at that time, were destined to become an excellent team, and we had to stand and watch them win all of those cups while we waited with the curse.
The chant "1940" still burns in my ears, but, besides heated Ranger/Islander games, I'm voting Potvin's sucks to go.
