They looked like they were running out of gas at the end. I don't believe they would have made it in 82 last year. I think they would have gotten swept possibly by the Penguins if not for that abomination Pittsburgh had in goal before going to Vokoun.

I don't like it either, but it has stuck for some reason. I just don't participate...

I love "Hey, you suck!". Rock N' Roll Part II is great. I'm glad we're one of the few teams who still use it. Gary Glitter drama be damned. To me, it's part of the Devils identity.

The "Hey You Suck" chant is one of the most ridiculous things in sports. It's so dumb. But I guess it's our ridiculous dumb thing now so I'm prepared to deal with it. I won't participate though.

I hate it too. It's starting to grow on me a little but I'm not sure why it ever changed. We never did that at Continental did we?

It's not that it's offensive, I just find it stupid and immature.

Exactly. Here is my perspective. Your team scores, you should be more happy and interested in the fact that they scored a goal than in making fun of the other team. You should be cheering your guys on, not giving all the attention to the other team. Not to mention that if the other team sucks, is scoring a goal against them anything to celebrate? Or are you just interested in making fun of the other team and not rooting for yours? In that case you should just follow the team you like to make fun of around and do that chant every time they get scored against anywhere.

I get no one is reading that far into it. It's still stupid. There is no way that chant is anything but. There is no way of looking at it that really makes any sense. Then again, not much in the world does make sense. So in the end it just is what it is. We're stuck with it.

I don't think there is a rivalry, just another team to be concern about.

In the Metro Div I think the team that will give the Devils problems this upcoming season are the Canes, Washington, Rangers and Pittsburgh.

Nervous never.

devs rivals are rangers and flyers, not worried about the canes at all unless we meet them in the playoffs (2008 game 7 still makes me sick)

Cosigner.

It's absolutely classless behavior that, from the outside, would appear to be born from some kind of bizarre white trash mob mentality.

The worst? When you see parents actually condone or even [I] encourage [/] their children to take part.

I forgot about that one.

My personal favorite (aside from the Duke boys original)



To the OP however, no, not really. At most a storied playoff opponent.

It frustrates me every time we score a goal.

I saw a fair bit of the Blue Jackets last season, and the team was more than just Bobrovsky. There's promise there.

Not near the level of the Rangers or Flyers but I still ****ing hate them. Especially because of Staal, just something about his face I don't know. Nervous? Not at all, I just want hockey to be back at this point and am excited to see what all the new faces on this team can do.

Probably at the bottom of the division on the rivalry rankings. Maybe

lulz.

I hate the Hurricanes. Hate Eric Staal. Hate Jordan Staal. Hate Jeff Skinner. Hate Jussi Jokinen for 2009. Loathe Nic friggin' Wallin for 2006. I hate them all.

But no, not a rival, and I agree with RG's assessment of them being a storied playoff opponent. Somewhat similar to our matchups with the Maple Leafs in the playoffs in the early 2000s.

Maybe a rivalry will build from being in the same division, but right now I'd say no.

I like the "you suck" just because it reminds me of my college days. At Northeastern the band plays the rock and roll part 2 tune, and the crowd goes "Sieve! You suck!". The hockey crowd at Northeastern made it pretty awful to be an opposing goalie at games. After the goal song ended and play began again they would start an "It's all your fault, it's all your fault" chant.

So that's why I kinda like it.

Oh, and I hate the Canes. I went to 1 game in Raleigh because my friend lived in NC at the time. It was the New Years Day game during the peak of our awfulness, right after MacLean got fired. We lost like 6 or 7-3. Heard that god awful goal song so many times it still haunts me haha.

I won't argue against the fact that the song is part of our identity. Every one of us has the vision of fans waving Pom-Poms to CAA's tinny rendition of RRP2 in 1995. And, except for the brief utilizations of Ole and Kernkraft, it has been our goal song for, like, ever? So yeah, it's part of our identity.

But the whole You Suck addend certainly isn't. I remember I was at a Devils/Isles game in November 2008, and that was the first time I heard the You Suck chant. I really don't know how it started, or how it caught on, really. I find it just as embarrassing as Carolina's cartoon audio clips.
