Go back to last season and 6,7,8 don't make playoffs if they were in the west.

Go back another season and 5,6,7,8 dont make playoffs if they were in the west.
We don't get 8 games vs Columbus and Edmonton over here.

Have you played the Islanders recently? At least they can take a shift.

But no, carry on, keep belittling the entire conference.

Rangers lost to EDM and needed OT to beat CLB.... Also LA was 2-2 vs both clubs this season.

Rangers fans get ready for excitement/denial/anger/acceptance/ the offseason.


I dont want to sound arrogant either but I have seen the Rangers many times these playoffs. I seriously doubt they will win 4 games against this Kings team.

I fear the Devils a little more. IMO they need to work much harder to beat Lundqvist but are more dangerous to me. I rather play against the Rangers.

And at the end of it a great team, who has never won a cup gets one. I'll be happy for the Kings. I'll also be happy the Rangers made it that far. But I'll be rooting for the kings over new jersey and I'll be annoyed the rangers lost to the dirty devils

I've been expecting the Kings to win the Cup since pretty much the mid-second round.

This arrogance is very amusing. Beat Phoenix first.

If the Rangers get to the finals, bring LA on. I'd rather play the Coyotes but I'm not scared of you guys.

It's hard to rag on a team that just went 8-0.

LOL.....you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Yes, you must be right.....either way, I guess borth the Rangers or the Devils should just give it up now and we can award the Kings the Cup now eh? Comical....

So you've been a Kings fan only the the great Felix Potvin Era of the Kings? LOL

Sorry to say to you, but we're the ones not concerned about your lowly Kings

Your Arrogance is Asinine........worry about closing out Phoenix first.

I'll look forward to this Mighty Kings team. I am impressed by them. I've seen them quite a bit throughout the season at Staples. My sister is a STH. But don't get ahead of yourself. You have no idea what the Rangers about and what kinda team they are to play against. But I'm sure you think you have it all figured out already. LOL.......here is little advice. Try Again.....

I don't think Phoenix can become the 4th team to come back from down 3-0 (& I'd hate to see either the Gnome or NHL listed as owner should they win the SC).
I hope the EF goes 7 games & the winner emerges broken & bruised.

I'd love to see my ex-Flyers win the Cup (even if it's in a different uniform) but it's much to early to declare them the winner of the SCF.

So, Go Kings!
