I am a Ranger fan and I would place a bet on the Devils tonight if I had any money.
Seriously though, I do that every game. Being a pessimist makes it easier to grasp a loss afterwards. Plus, I find that my pessimism is actually realism in regards to the Rangers.
These overly optimistic fans deserve to be smacked every now and again. There are things to be excited about, but there are also things to be angry about.
Never know which Rangers team is going to show up offensively (what matters most - outscoring the opposition) because the talent level is skim as opposed to the work ethic level. Luck needs to be on our side to score goals more often than not.
