I hate them both. But I hate the Devils a little extra.

I hate the Isles then the Flyers.

Devil fans will hate to hear this but I could really care less about them.

But seriously, hate is a strong word. It's hard to feel that way against some other team when the Rangers very own management was a mess for so long.

Flyers by a mile...The Devils mean nothing to me...Probably because unlike almost all of you, I grew up when the Broad Street Bullies were constantly wiping the ice with the Rangers.....Isles Second becasue of scum like Nystrom and Howatt...THird comes the Bruins..Devils are insignificant..

Boxcar on both sides - it was up close and personal.

The really old fans hate the Bruins! that's the time before Flyers and Islanders existed!

I can't hate the devils - they were the Colorado Rockies once and they were abominably harmless (Barry Beck was a Rockie) and they used to have nice colourful uniforms then they moved to a half empty arena in a swamp playing in Green and red. Winning the cup in front of empty seats....You can't be too cross with them....pity is the more appropriate sentiment.

The Devils don't even feature on the hate scale. I crossed the anger bridge

its Isles and Flyers
Missed this one..I guess we agree...Loved Boxcar as a Ranger..What a freakin nut...ANd you have the Bruins pegged also....We agree except foe one thing...Fotiu and Brown was new stufff...Schultz and Rolfe, Kelly, Kindrachuck barber, Clarke, that was the hated old stuff...

Hate them both equally.

Buy seriously, why does it even matter? We all know the Isles are number one on our most hated list. I guess Debbies fans just want to feel important, like someone cares about them.

tough call, because I think the flyers (and their fans) are bigger jerks. But I voted for NJ, since i know and have to deal with a lot more of their fans.

Devils are #1 for me still, alot of that still stems from meeting in the playoffs, from the always annoying Doc and Chico, and from from little Marty. While DP is almost as annoying, the Isles don't bother me much anymore, because they haven't been constistantly good and the didn't sweep us in the first round of 05/06. They Isles I guess are second, but honestly I have fun going back and forth with the Isles fans at games. Philly and the Pens are about tied for 3rd, of course Philly plays more physical, so they get the slight edge. Who doesn't love seeing Crosby get shut down though?

Hey guys and girls...it's my first real post...


If we're gonna go with fan base, I would certainly say Islanders. I was pushed down the stairs when I was younger cause I was making fun of a sore Islander fan after a Ranger OT win by Theo Fluery. That sealed it for me right there.

But between the Debs and Phillys I'd vote for the Philly. I was at a game at the Rock recently and I wore my jersey and didn't get more than a "Rangers Suck" on the way there or the way home and actually had very intelligent conversations with a few Debs fans around me.

When I was in Philly, i damn near got run out of town. People i've known all my life turned into little bi***es and would barely talk to me the entire time.

Though I can't vote yet, I cast it as:

Philly by a landslide. [

It goes back to the trauma of my youth watching the Rangers routinely assaulted by the flea's.

Watching the broad street bullies taught me what hate actually was.
Yes. Thank you. That's old school

Probably the Flyers, but a lot of that is because of my feelings about the city and the people.

Stupid reason, but something I will not deny.

I said both but because we've owned the Flyers the last couple of years and they really don't have anyone on that club that I can focus my hate on as they have in years past (i.e. Brashear) I have to say I despise the Devils more. I cannot stand Marty Brodeur. As good as he is, he is still the same arrogant f#&k as he was back in 1994 when he first started. He thought he was the better goalie then and he still thinks that. And I say F-U to him and the sister in law that he cheated on his wife with!

I wish the Flyers, and their fans, would just go away forever.

My sentiments exactly! Plus...before the Devils and Isles, the Flyers were already pissing off Ranger fans regularly!
