Simple enough, they now have Toots, Dubi, AA, and Jan Erixon's kid. What's not to like? When Dubi gets the C, I will buy his jersey. I really want to see them do well now, I hope I am not the only one.

What? My loyalty is to the name on the front of the jersey, not the back.

The only time that happens, is if its a guy who had significant career contributions with this team.

I don't feel that loyalty to either Dubi/Ani or Erixon. Nothing against them personally, and I wish them well. But they are pretty much irrelevant to me now.

I am saying as a secondary team. It's not like I am asking if people will no longer follow the NYR. I find this response surprising. Maybe I just like hockey too much, but if I like a player, I go out of my way to watch and root for them, even if they get traded away.

I may catch some games because of who they have and I hope the former Rangers do well there but I don't care about the Blue Jackets. Only team I root for is the Rangers. Don't really have a second team.

The only other team I always like to see win is Detroit (unless they face us).

They aren't my "second favorite team".

Totally forgot Vinny is still playing there. I know he has a front office job waiting, so he will be there for some time.

I wish the ex-Rangers the best. I'll probably tune in when Columbus plays the Devils and Islanders but other than that I doubt I'll follow them that closely.

Intrigued to see how they perform, but having a "second" team is a joke.

Sports psychology baffles me sometimes. Nothing personal mate, but I doubt I'll ever understand.

Some people are hockey fans first. I see nothing wrong with cheering on multiple teams (other than your main team), it's more hockey you get to watch and be enthusiastic about. I will definitely be following CBJ now that a couple of my favorite ex-Rangers are there. I'd love to see them continue to have successful careers. Big fan of Jack Johnson too, he is a great competitor for USA Hockey and loves playing for his country.

Some of your answers surprise me very much. I am a fan of Hockey, not just the NYR. As such, I watch hockey, not just the NYR games. If two other teams are on, I am watching. I love to see how other players are doing.

I cannot beleive people saying "having a second team is a joke". Huh? I have more then one other team I follow. I live in NC now, so guess what, I go to Canes games, always when the Rangers are in town, but other games too, and I root for the Canes when the Rangers aren't here. Now I will do the same for CBJ.

How can you know who else you want to trade for, if you only care about/watch the NYR?? Oh, I forgot, this is HF, where all that matters are the stats lines. I guess Marc Staal sucks, I mean look at those stats. Come on guys, you have to watch all the teams, and there is nothing wrong with wanting other teams to do well (as long as they are not the Flyers, Devils, or the Fishsticks).

OK, rant off....and thanks to the other guys backing me up about watching the Jackets when they can!

Nobody said YOU can't watch the CBJ. But I do not have a desire to do so, just because some ex Rangers are on the team. I watch plenty of hockey outside of the NYR's, doesn't mean I am a fan of those teams.

Agreed with everything here. Fan of the sport first.

I'll definitely be catching some Rangers East games now.

This. Although the Hawks are my "second" team or "west" team, cuz my Uncle lives in Chicago and is a huge Hawks fan and it rubs off on me. Really enjoy the Hawks.
