Flyers for me, can't stand them. I've hated them since 1997 more than any other team.

Plus I always kind of think of them as tough guys that always need to be smacked around.

Don't get me wrong I really hate the Isles also, but I respect the Devils (outside of Brodeur)

It's tough to hate a team with no fans.
The Devils have won 3 cups recently and keep being a contender yet have no sellouts.

I got to go Isles, Flyers, then Devils.

What I find interesting is how few people said the B's.
If you'd done this poll 30, maybe 20 years ago they would have been spoken of a lot.
Isn't it too bad this orignal six rivalry is a dead one?
If PIT moves, I wonder if BOS comes into the division?
This is the only sport in which these towns are not enemies.

It used to be the Isles growing up.

Now I'd rather get swept by them for an entire season, than lose one more time to the Devils. They are the only team I can't stand in the entire NHL.

I hate the Islanders because I am a Rangers Fan. I hate the Devils because I am human.

I went with the Islanders. Right now I might hate the Sabres more than any other team though. Blacking out our games upstate when Empire was still running--now all of a sudden they've co-opted our channel. What is with that? The Sabres on MSG instead of the Rangers on the same night. Not to mention the terrible homer announcers they have. The devils, flyers and Penguins though--there is no love for any of them.

Changes between the Devils & Fishsticks.

I hate the Flyers though too.


I don't mind Boston that much. Maybe its because they havent been good lately & I feel bad for them making such a bone head move in dealing Joe T.

You know who's gaining fast on my hate parade? Buffalo. Not only do they have some really obnoxious posters here, constantly rubbing noses in it, but they have the most annoying broadcast crew. When you add that we upstaters are consistantly subjected to seeing the Sabres play on MSG NETWORK while the Rangers are on the radio, it really makes me dislike them alot. However, the team itself is kind of entertaining to watch.

Isles will always be enemy #1, but considering the last decade of domination, the Devils probably have asserted themselves at the top in many minds of Ranger fans of recent years.

lol best answer yet!

for me its 1 islanders 2 flyers 3 devils

I went to school outside of philly and if you had asked me that question then i would have certainly said flyers due to having to deal with all the ridiculous philly fans and propoganda

though i guess the only real answer to this question is i really hate them all, whichever one we're playing

I think Philly, most definitely, has the most annoying, clueless fans of any team we play on a regular basis. I can't stand that team simply because of the fanbase. And that's besides the fact that they play some of the dirtiest hockey around.

Agreed. I've almost come to blows many times with my friends. I miss the Richter vs. Brodeur arguements.

I am shocked by the results. I thought it would be 100% Islanders. I grew up on Long Island, suffered through the good Islanders teams, and have a hatred so deep I cant stand them and their fans.

The Filthy Friggen Flyers......hands down! they've been tormenting the Rangers for all of my life basically. As much as i dislike the Islanders, I'll take them over the Flyers ANY day!

Devils. Ever since we beat them in '94 they have been giving us hell. And the fact that they are the least penalized team burns me up even more.

Can't stand them and hope to God they move out of our conference. I hate the Devils the most, I love playing the Flyers because it's always a nasty game, but I hate them. The Isles, they have been bad enough, at least as bad as we are, for long enough that I would hate them the least of the area teams.
Thank you, and they will be, because the arena talks have come to an impasse.

That, and they have one of the biggest fair-weather fanbases in the NHL, which makes it all the more annoying that 3 young studs in Crosby, Malkin, and Staal were handed to them because of Lemieux's "back-door" relationship with Bettman.

Yeah, Lou can cheat the NHL, but no one else can, and the refs call to their reputation of not taking penalties, when they hooked, clutched, and grabbed through the neutral zone like no other, and still do.

Overall, I hate the Devils more than any other team because of those reasons. I also hate it because they killed the game with their boring trap hockey.

The Flyers are right behind them because they've always had a few dirty players over the years, and hearing injury excuses as to why they didn't win the cup year after year gets annoying.

The Penguins annoy me because as I've stated before, the fans abandoned the team for all of those years, and only come out when the team is good. Having an old arena is NO EXCUSE for not going to see your team. Oh yeah, and waiting for the 13th hour to give a damn about the team doesn't help either.

The Islanders are right behind them, being that I can't hate a NY team more than a Penn or Jersey team more than an NY team. We have a great rivalvry with them, and although some of their fans are just bleh, most of them are cool people. I have a lot of friends of mine that are Islander fans, including a few that post on the Isles board.

The Bruins... I don't hate the Bruins, I actually like them, and always have. The Rangers/Bruins rivalry just hasn't been the same. There have been a lot of Bruins over the years that I like/respect. Cam Neely and Ray Bourque are two of my all time favorites. Joe Thornton is one of my favorite active players, and I loved him as a Bruin. Phil Kessel is a player I like a lot, and have a lot of respect for, especially with what he's gone through this season.

You know, I feel the same. Since the 90's I've actually cheered for them when it didn't involve the Rangers. I can't stand baseball anymore so the Yanks/Sox rivalry means nothing to me. Maybe that's why.

As far as the others go, I hate every ****** team not wearing Ranger blue!
