Favorite all time hockey player: Brian Leetch

What age were you when you became a Ranger fan? Too young to remember

Anyone in particular you owe becoming a NYR fan to? My father, and the Long Island Ducks for my general interest in Hockey.Did you actually play hockey growing up? Street, ice and/or school? Yes, street of course, but Roller as well. <--Behind Superior in KP.
Ever build your own goal net as a kid? Yes, it was terrible!!!!

NYR bumper/window sticker on your vehicle. Yay or nay? Chevy Avalanche back window NY York Rangers with the Liberty emblem on either side.
If yes above, do you purposely pull in front of cars with Devils bumperstickers so that they can see it? ...And Moon them!

If it were up to you, what song would play in the Garden before the PP started? "You wana be starting something...you got to be starting something." Nothing like Black Michael to get your groove on! Seriously that song is just stuck in my head today.

'Potvin sucks!'... Time to move on from the chant or funny as ever? Never move on, it's a part of this clubs rich history and should be chanted still...But not 5 times per game. Once or twice will do....but let is stand as a testiment to NYR Tradition and the passionate fans that support the organization.
Favorite NYR memory NOT from the '94 season: I loved the Domi/Probert war and was at the rematch at MSG.Do you have kids and if so, are they hockey fans? NYR fans? Tough subjectIf you were on the rules committee and could change one rule, which one? I would alter the instigator, and let the players police the ice again. I would get rid of the puck over the glass penalty but treat it like an icing.
Fighting in hockey: Too much, too little, or just right? More of it, but more spontanuity to it as well. Should be reactionary, not planned out.

Third man in. Toss it out? Alter it, but it should stand. <--Don't want to go back to the Broad Street Bullies again.

Age: 21, 22 in April

Favorite current Ranger: Derek Stepan/Henrik Lundqvist

Favorite all time Ranger: Alex Kovalev

Favorite all time hockey player: Right now Hemsky is up there for me. However, Messier gets the nod for all time at the moment. For what he did in 1994 in one of the hardest places to play the game at.

What age were you when you became a Ranger fan? 4

Anyone in particular you owe becoming a NYR fan to? My Dads cousin who recently passed away at a young age of 38 from a heart attack. My Uncle, and my Dad. We were into the Russian's on the team, thus we started to follow the Rangers. As years went on the Rangers became a part of us, and we became a part of them. We all bleed Ranger blue.

Did you actually play hockey growing up? Street, ice and/or school? I played alot of street hockey. I was a tremendous goalie out there. I also played in a roller league. We placed in 3rd place once, 2nd place another, and won the championship in another season. I played Defense mostly. Played a simple affective game. I was moved to forward at times. I have 2 trophies. One from the 2nd place and the other from our championship team.

Ever build your own goal net as a kid? Have attempted to/fooled around with it. Then went to Model's and got a goal net.

NYR bumper/window sticker on your vehicle. Yay or nay? I have a window sticker. I'm going to get a Ranger frame for my plates as well.

If yes above, do you purposely pull in front of cars with Devils bumperstickers so that they can see it? Haven't seen Devil cars. But it's something I would def. do. I've done it w/ Islander cars though.

If it were up to you, what song would play in the Garden before the PP started? Anything with a good beat that pumps you up.

'Potvin sucks!'... Time to move on from the chant or funny as ever? I have no problem w/ keeping traditions.

Favorite NYR memory NOT from the '94 season: Adam Graves goal of the 1997 game 5 playoffs against the Devils. I remember being glued to my car radio b/c we were all out on a picnic. It was a tremendous feeling.

Do you have kids and if so, are they hockey fans? NYR fans? No kids yet. When I do I will make sure they grow up into die hard RANGER fans. I'll teach them the game and even have hem play the game.

If you were on the rules committee and could change one rule, which one? I don't like the Trapezoid.

Fighting in hockey: Too much, too little, or just right? I think it's a very important part of the game. It's a role individuals prepare for every off season and it shouldn't be taken out of the game.

Third man in. Toss it out? It really depends what the third man in is doing.

Ok cheesy questions time: Favorite tv show? Not much time for TV shows anymore. But I did like Prison Break. You can include the late night shows as well. Letterman, Craig, Kimmel are nice.

Favorite munchie during the games? Armenian food

What'cha drinkin? Right now, Seltzer.

Favorite motto/cliche? LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

" I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people. whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia. See if you can do it. Send them to the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing, and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a NEW Armenia!

"When you pull on that jersey you represent yourself and your teammates. And the name on the front is a hell of a lot more important than the one on the back." - Herb Brooks"
