Henrik Lundqvist.... you suck chant?

I know this is maybe boardline waste of a thread space, but I'm curious. What is that chant and why? Well I guess I know why, but that's a pretty bad friggin chant. Heard it first at the infamous Hollweg/Simon game in Nassau, and I'm pretty sure I've heard it on TV coming from Atlanta. Where did it come from, and how has it spread from the Islander fans to the Thrasher fans? Or am I just imagining things and it's not happening in Atlanta?

I've heard worse.

the old "Alan Arbour beats his wife" chant

the really tasteless "Buy a Porsche Hextall, buy a Porsche" soon after Pelle Lindburgh passed away in a car crash

The Garden use to have a reputation as a place teams hated to go to play games in. The fans is the Blue seats USED to be filled with poor folk and lots of criminals and some of the lowest form of pond scum known to man (Proud to include myself in that group) Red Seats will always suck. Imagine that, we even heckled our own fans.

The Garden is not what it used to be, somehow they classed the place up and that's unfortunate, because they got rid of alot of identity while doing it.

The Chant, it's no big deal. We've heard and bestowed worse on our-selves

That's a terrible chant...


I think if fans were to boo or mock Lundqvist with those stupid, non catchy chants, it would only make him do better. Rangers might not win the game but atleast Lundqvist would be on top of his game.

I thought it was 'beat your wife Denny beat your wife' from Potvin hitting his wife....?

As Ranger fans we don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to chants. Some of the most tastless have been heard at the Garden over the years. Potvin Sucks is our mild one, right?

Alright everyone post the worst you have heard at MSG;

Here are two I remember-

Dumb Pollock... stupid Pollock... Pollock! Against Don Koraski(sp) for a missed call.

and

A$s-hole... from time to time against other teams guys.

Funny, I've always referred to him as Al, Alan or Radar (playing days nick-name)

but if that's his name, then I'm feeling kind of dumb right now.

I remember at the Rangers Stanley cup parade the one side of the street chanted "Lets go Rangers" and the other side of that street followed with "F@#$ Vancouver!"

There was also the "Detroit Sucks" chant as Mike Keenan came down the street since it was rumoured during the finals he was leaving for Detroit.

why do professional sports crowds have the worst, most unimaginative chants? Lundqvist You Suck? Is that it? Man, can't imagine he's ever heard that before.

Atlanta is still a fairly new Hockey Town it's to be expected that their chants are gonna be a little amateurish. This is the first time since 1970 they saw a Hockey playoff game, I thought their crowd did a good job of being loud even though their team didn't really give them anything to cheer for.

Soccer/Football (especially English) chants are actually the most clever and witty, and also at times virulent, chants i have ever heard.

in fact i WISH that our fans would drop the "Potvin Sucks" chant or at the VERY least substitute the opposing teams name for Potvin. c'mon, it's so irritating to sit there (at times) watching a flat team and a flat unimaginative crowd whistling and screaming "Potvin Sucks".

super weak sauce, thats my rant.. haha..

hey y'all!

awesome our "you sucks" were heard on national television! lol

anyway, as for the origin of ours; well the sections where it originated from (316-320) is known as the "nasty nest" at Philips. we have lots of other chants as well. the "you suck" chant (goalie, goalie, goalie, YOU SUCK) actually was stolen from the cellblock 303 folks in nashville.

Don't feel so special Ranger fans, the 'goalie goalie goalie... YOU SUCK" chant happens every game, not just against the Rangers.

The "goalie, goalie, goalie.....you suck" chant has been around for years. I've heard it at 75% or more of the game I've ever been to. AHL, NHL, CHL, doesn't matter.

At the CHL games they actually say "goalie" because nobody can remember the netminders names.

ye its been said already, but english soccer fans have very good chants. I've been pretty dissapointed in the chants in all american sports venues anyways. Doesnt matter if its college or pro sports, it seems that alot people are more intrested in the "entertainment" value of the game, without actually taking part in it.

Sports isnt like going to the damn movies!! Stand up, stay up, and shout/sing the whole game. Oh btw, wouldnt hurt if people actually organised some sort of fanclubs that actually had organised chants etc. Two/three "lets go rangers" aint much (ye i know theres more in the playoffs).

For myself having watched alot of OHL games (I think you are referring to the central hockey leaguue and not the canadian hockey league) and we usually don't taunt the goalies until playoffs. We usually just chant their name tauntingly. Never thought of the you suck part. we just try and get under their skin.

Yeah, I was referring to the lesser known Central Hockey League. I should have clarified.

Every one of those game I went to, regular season or playoffs, they would use the "you suck" goalie chant.
