And you can throw Montreal in there as well. Actually, part of me hates Montreal even more because of the arrogant and obnoxious fans...it creates a sense of nationalism for me.
Agree with your post minus the Montreal part, insert former Atlantic team, Washington; hate their fans and their stupid goal horn.

Meant to vote tie.

They both intensified this past year, but we were absolutely Flyer proof. Sweep the season series, AND the Winter Classic? You could see me glowing for days after a win over Philly.

Devils? That's a blood hatred. Especially after the playoffs, the word on my mind is revenge.

Flyers

Not even close.
Philly has a loud, nasty fan base and a history of dirty goons.

If the Flyers win we hear about it, if the Devils win nobody cares. The tree falls in the silent forest.


This poll shows how young if not naive most are. I mean Pens over Flyers and Isles?
No mention of the Bruins or Caps?
The PIT hate is absurd considering the 3 recent playoffs with the Caps.

What I'm trying to say is, even if the Devils rivalry is stronger, I'd pay more money to go to a Rangers - Flyers game than a Rangers - Devils game.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Thats exactly how I feel.

Rivalries

Which teams would you say the Rangers have a rivalry with that were running hot last season? Especially because of stuff that occurred these past few years.

Would you say there's a current rivalry against these teams? Why?
  • Rangers vs. Philadelphia Flyers
  • Rangers vs. New Jersey Devils
  • Rangers vs. New York Islanders
I'm not here to start a hate thread against other teams and non-Rangers players, so please keep it cool and civilized . I'm just in need of some perspective and want to hear your opinion

I don't view that as likely.

I've despised them since the early 70's...

Unless you live in South Jersey, who cares about Philly fans? A few of them trek here for games, but not a huge amount. And they may have had a team of dirty goons in the past, but with a couple exceptions, their current makeup is a pretty likeable team, unfortunately.

I would wager 25%+ of the NYR fanbase lives in North Jersey. Trust me, if the Devils win, we hear it.

The Flyers and Islanders rivalries have cooled down in recent years. Fans who pick them are still living in the past.

Caps and Boston? When was the last time we had a rivalry with them?

The game changes. Keep up.

  • Rangers vs. Philadelphia Flyers - I actually don't mind the Flyers.
  • Rangers vs. New Jersey Devils - I hate them and their fans.
  • Rangers vs. New York Islanders - I actually don't mind the Islanders.

I'll probably hate the Islanders when they eventually get good. The Flyers, on the other hand, looking back at their history, I love it. If I was alive during the intense rivalry, I'd obviously hate them, but the fact of the matter is, I wasn't.

The ****ing Devils are just self-explanatory.
