When we have Alexei Cherepanov come, we can play HIER KOMMT ALEX by Die Toten Hosen. Oh my god, when is the last time we had a song played after a player scored a goal?(except for Prucha and Franz Ferdinand).

Hossa had one, but we never heard it.

They already play New York, New York as well as New York State of Mind after games (usually when the arena is close to empty).

I wouldn't mind seeing Sweet Caroline dumped. As it's been mentioned, it reminds me of the collective demon spawn known as the Boston Red Sox, but I think alot of fans now associate it with the Rangers after the last few post-lockout seasons. Plus Renney likes it, so it will stay.

The stick salute will definitely stay, that's become an outstanding tradition IMO.

That isn't Franz Ferdinand for Prucha, it's Dschinghis Khan:



Also, they played Irish music a few times after Shanny scored. I believe that first started in Detroit.

No they also used Do You Wanna by Franz Ferdinand for Prucha a couple of times.

Don't you think that is a tad over the top for a regular season game?

Assembling at center ice and raising your stick for 3 seconds to a crowd that pays the type of money they pay to see a team win is far from over the top if you ask me. Its a classy move and connects the fans to the players.

I'm sure if the Devils did it, you'd love it - seriously. I think all the teams should do it if they want to. I find nothing wrong with it, its not taunting the other team - it's not staying out there for a minute and soaking up the applause. Whats the difference between that and a single player coming out for the 3 stars announcement?

Agreed. It's not over the top at all. There is a sense of appreciation when they raise their sticks to the cheering home crowd.

They could do personal handshakes for everyone in the crowd and still be in bed on time.

Henrik should get the Enter Sandman theme prior to shootouts. I have no problem with Sweet Caroline. It has been established now, we should go with it. When we make the finals, Neil Diamond can come and sing it live,.

Agreed. I think it's a great tradition. I know the Islanders, Sabres and maybe the Blackhawks have also done it as well at various points. If every team did it, I wouldn't have a problem with it. Even the USA Men's Basketball team did a group wave to the fans in Beijing. If you're paying good money to see these games, it's nice to get something extra, even something quick like the stick salute.

Exactly, the three star presentation is enough. I just think it's a little presumptuous. If it was the playoffs, I get it, but you don't need to salute the crowd when you destroy some bottom dwelling team like the Leafs.

If the purpose of it is to honor and acknowledge the fans, what difference does it make if they do it after every win?

Its not about the other team or even the accomplishments of the Rangers that night. Its about honoring the fans who came out to see the team win that night.

I can see how you feel that way since youre biased towards the Rangers, but let's be honest. If that was Brodeur, Rolston, Elias, Gionta, etc at center ice saluting you and the rest of your fellow Devils fans at the rock you would eat that up man... its really one of the coolest little moments during an event and something to look forward to seeing when entering the arena that night, regular season or playoffs...

Hey, the Rangers did it when they got booted from the playoffs 2 years ago to Buffalo at home. That had nothing to do with anything except thanking the fans for their support. I think its a very good thing, something we dont have enough of in the sporting world.

You're right, it is a cool thing for a team to do, but I just think doing it every win is just a little much.

Every win at home that is... which was 25 times last year.

Fair enough...

I hate this song and wish it would go away, but it's not. Unfortunately it's corny chorus is too irresistable for people not to sing along to. Oh well.

ROFL so true, I'm glad you caught my original post before I edited it to avoid any arguments (at least before the season starts).

The Rangers do the stick salute for every game they win AT HOME. It's really not a huge deal. They aren't hitting the team they just beat in the face with their sticks, they're just showing their appreciation for a SUPPORTIVE AND FULL crowd.

now that I think of it...

I wouldn't mind if the game ends, the three stars are announced, and the players go to the locker rooms and change. I understand the stick salute was something started after the lockout, but I don't see the big deal anymore. And the winning song - interesting, but I kind of like the say Yankees games end - with NY, NY in the background. I don't see a salute in the other sports nor is there a winning song (at least I don't believe). Perhaps with Jagr moving on the tradition can change.

That's so Yankee tradition. How about something original...I don't mind the Sweet Caroline thing, but that's been a Red Sox thing. There's tons of options out there, if they change it I want to see something original.
