I would root for the home team to lose every game so I never see other fans happy. And NY would lose in heartbreak.
This is an excellent answer! I'll go for this. It would be great to see the home fans always disappointed. It would even be better if the home team never led in a game so that the home fans experience no joy during the games.
would root for the Rags, I don't dislike the rangers as much as the other division teams, henrik lundqvist is the most likable goalie in the division outside of Bryz. Plus it would most likely mean we lost to the cup champs and would solidify how tough this division is, being the best in hockey IMO.
Who cares if people say Homer's moves bit him in the ass? If it's Kings-Rags I'm 100% rooting for the Kings. Hell, if the Flyers are out I want the Kings to win the Cup. Even though Carter is a choke artist, it's not like he was an ass*ole while he was here. I love Richie, Carter and Gagne, and would love seeing them win it (if the Flyers are no longer in).
If the Flyers do not win the cup, it's not because of the trades. The main reason for me would be: missing big defencive peices at the most critical time of the year and (yet again) big question mark between the pipes.
I would be happy for Gagne and Richards if the Kings take it all
I'd definitely root for the Kings. Not just for the former Flyers, but guys like Brown and Kopitar are fun to watch as well. Much rather see them lift the cup than say Dubinsky or Prust. If they do reach the final, I hope Gagné somehow miraculously can return.
Even if the Kings win the cup, I wouldn't take back either of the trades.
Maybe it is just me but I am enjoying this years Flyers team more than any of the teams during the Richards/Carter era.
Cognitive dissonance convinces many of us of this, but really think back to the 2010 run...Gagne scoring to go up 4-3 in Game 7 against Boston, Richie scoring on Halak on that pure heart play...that was my favorite Flyer team.
Having said that, I love this team and love the trades, but just because Homer made a couple moves doesn't erase my fond memories of the Richards era.
