A Big What If?

just a hypothetical situation, so don't go trying to fight me or something over this one


What if its Kings vs. Rangers in the Cup, who do Flyer fans "root" for?

Philly West Coast or the hated rival NYR

Root for the Kings. Richards and Gagne deserve cups. I have no ill will towards them at all, and still enjoy watching them play.

We root for the flyers, because they will be there instead of the rags.

LA ofc. I love that team. My feelings for the rangers are quite the opposite.

I would root for the home team to lose every game so I never see other fans happy. And NY would lose in heartbreak.

Ummm, you answer your own question. Philly West coast or the hated Rangers.
The answer would be obvious.

Nobody has ill will towards Gagne, Richards, Hextall or Justin Williams but everybody loathes the Rangers.

The bigger question would be this....

Game 7, Stanley Cup Finals

Kings 5, Flyers 4 (OT)

Jeff Carter 3G, 1A
Mike Richards 1G, 2A, GWG, SHG

As Jeff Carter hoists the Cup, are you watching? crying? cutting? or all of the above? Keep in mind... that game is in Philly

Carter scores a hat trick in a playoff game, let alone a Finals game. Good one

And honestly I'd root for the Rangers. I could live with the best team left in the league winning it even if they are a hated rival. But the Flyers and Flyer fans would never here the end of it if those 2 won the cup.

I would root for the NY Rangers.

I cannot stomach the thought of multiple blockbuster trades and acquistions orchestrated by our own GM bringing a cup to an organization other than the Philadelphia Flyers.

Im rooting* for the Rangers, but that has nothing to really do with the question I asked now does it.

Apparently everyone else on your board was capable of answering the question, without doing what you are trying to do, so my question back at you is what is your problem?

I just wanted to see how Flyer fans feel, obviously no Flyer fan here thinks they are going to get knocked out; I just wanted to get a general idea where Flyer fans stand if these two teams end up playing in the cup.

And yes, I know Rangers are hated rivals, but if I am a Flyers fan I don't want to see Mike freaking Richards and Carter hoisting the cup after trading them away, regardless of if they asked to be traded or not

i'd unfortunately go for the rangers, i dislike mike richards enough to hope he never wins it... plus, if the rangers win that means the flyers lost in the playoffs to the stanley cup champions

Carter with a hatty in the playoffs? Why would the Flyers pull Bryz and allow 3 empty net goals?

I don't root for anyone not the Flyers. If we go out, it's on to CFL and NFL for me
