Name: Smitty is fine. Age: 22 Location: Wilmington, DE Occupation/Education: Law student Ranger fan since: 1994. I had never watched much (or any) hockey before the 1994 finals. Seeing such an amazing series instantly turned me into a fan, of the game and of the team. Season tickets / section: No. Favorite current Ranger: None. I hate the whole damn roster right now. Sign Kovalchuk and we'll talk. I guess maybe someone in whom there is hope for the future. Tyutin or Lundqvist. Favorite past Ranger: Mike Richter Favorite Ranger moment: Gary Thorne's calls in Game 7 versus the Canucks. Other: I'll get back to you on this.

Hello all. Although I'm over 600 posts deep, I'm new to an NHL season here at HF. So let's kick some *** this year. I want playoffs! We have waited long enough! I was 11 the last time they made the playoffs. I don't even know what it's like to have a friggin beer and watch my damn team in the playoffs! Anyway...
Name: Sean Age: 19 Location: Wyckoff, NJ (Bronx,NY for school) Occ/Ed: Sophomore at Fordham U Rangers fan since: I can remember Season tix: Almost, but decided not Favorite NYR: Ask me in a few months Favorite past NYR: Richter, Messier, Leetch, Buekeboom, Graves...when I was younger my favorite was Kovalev. He was my favorite on the '94 team but he's a bum now. Favorite Moment: '94, burying my head in the couch with 1.6 left because I couldn't look and then hearing Sam say it was over.
Being at Game 3 at NJ in '94.
Being at game 6 (i think) in '97 at NJ and dancing in the hallway in the last row after we took another playoff series vs NJ in OT.

Location: west central NJ
Occ/Ed: Database Administrator
Rangers fan since: 70s, hardcore since 1980
Season tix: too far, too much dough
Favorite NYR: none, but I was warming to York and Barnaby for a while there...
Favorite past NYR: too hard to pick one. Erixon, Richter, Hedberg, Kisio, Graves. The smart, honest, hard-working stand-up guys. I'm sure I missed some. Anybody else said Paul Broten yet? And Tikkanen, Larmer, Gartner... ah, never mind.
Favorite Moment: '94, celebrating with my 7-month-pregnant wife...a whole year of miracles I'd like to have back.
Worst Moment: The Morrow goal... was that '84? Too many dead brain cells, damn. Runner-up: same wonderful wife not waking me up after the between period break so I missed "Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!". I have never and WILL never let her forget.
I'm a cranky old fart who gets impatient with some of the, shall we say, "youthfully overexuberant" ravings out here ("why don't we trade Poti and his grandma for Iginla and a 1st rounder"? You know who you are...) but I am also a good dad whose daughter usually knows most of the Hartford roster and understands all the new rules already. Trying to make the next generation better, I guess. Also I could use a really solid permanent DB2 DBA gig in Jersey (sorry, I had to, it's a tough market out there).
