More than double the division titles, more notable alumni, and an all-time franchise scorers list that embarrasses the hell out of ours (with all due respect to Gilbert,Leetch, and Ratelle). We've always had the worst history of the O6, but many expansion teams in their shorter span have dwarfed us in terms of success. This is why I've always found the arrogance of some of our fan base towards other fans of more successful franchises insufferable, with NYR fans only argument is "we have more fans." Of course you're gonna have more fans when you've been around for more than 50 years longer and in the most populated city no less.
