I agree with you. But the thing is that "Potvin sucks!" is an attack. I don't like the chant, but it is a shot across the bow by Ranger fans, whether or not they actually know what they're talking about. You don't shoot back across the bow by defending your guy, you have to shoot back, and we have no ammo.

As for Potvin being the 2nd best defenseman ever, I disagree. I don't strongly disagree, but I disagree. For me, as far as putting it all together; passing, shooting, skating, hitting, quarterbacking a power play, putting the fear of God into opponents, he's the best ever! Bobby Orr was incredible, and he was a wizard with the puck and had great hockey sense, and was tremendous offensively,but I think Potvin has him beat in the all-around game.

That's Potvin. He doesn't need to fire back. The fans firing back for him with that response is weak.

You're claiming to be a bigger Devil fan than Devil fans? That's just silly. I'm rooting for the Devils, too, but that doesn't speak to the heat of the rivalry.

It's stupid chant, especially since he has nothing to do with this game. It has no meaning and does not fuel the rivalry.

it fuels the rivalry because it bothers us when they chant it while up 3-0 with 5 min to go at the coliseum....even if you claim it doesn't

the chicken dance was stupid as well, but i had a great time doing it in front of a crying ranger fan while he was walking his ass outta the coliseum after a loss

Your whole original argument is that the rivalry is dead, but if pretty much every other poster in this thread is telling you the opposite, doesn't that prove to you that the rivalry is still on?

It tells me that people want to believe it's alive, but the reality is that it's severely lacking.

Don't thank God, thank me!

I'm not telling you that what you believe are lies, I'm just offering a point of view.

This.

Also the premise that the rivalry is dead because the Islanders have been pure failure for almost 20 seasons is wrong, given the whole point of the "1940" chant was to highlight the Rangers' decades of failure, several of those decades in a 6 team league. Thus, by your argument, the rivalry was dead before 1994 and it was the Rangers fault.

Yeah, the wind is out of our sails right now because we're clearly on the bottom, looking up at the Rangers, but there is no doubt that the players and fans elevate their level of intensity when these teams meet despite the disparity of quality of play.

The rivalry is alive and well. It's completely intense! I get nervous and shake like a leaf before every head to head match up!

records don't matter when they play, if you are at a ranger/islander game it is never just a game... I don't know why we are putting them on a pedestal.. prior to this year the rangers have been an average team overall since they won in 94, despite always being near the top of payroll and attractive to FAs... they have not been back to the cup since. unlike yankees/redsox where yanks regularly won..

I have always felt the rangers are the yankees without the success (Met fan here).

if the fans feel rivalry, then there is one..

No, Bauer Warrior says there isn't a rivalry, so that's the end of that...who are we to argue with him?

I'm not putting them on a pedestal, I'm just saying that the rival is definitely not what it was prior to 1994.
