what is the tradition of the NY Rangers Franchise? Just because they've been around doesn't mean there's a tradition. Seemed to me that the 'tradition' was more concerned with big names and glitz than winning hockey games.
Rangers definitely have one of the worst histories of all the original six teams. 4 Cups, countless years of heartbreak. Missed the playoffs 30 out of 80ish seasons. Lots of terrible owners. Bad GMs and coaches, etc.
1994 brought respect back to the organization which was then crashed again by our playoff drought. Finally now the team is getting back to respectability, but unless they win a couple cups, we're still the Original 6 team with the 2nd least amount of Cups which is really a shame.
In terms of traditions, the fans in MSG have some of the best traditions in North American Sports, however, the team on the other hand? IDK.

Anyone else sick of this intro already? It really doesn't get anyone pumped up. After like the second time I kind of get annoyed when I hear it now. I thought it was only going to be an intro for the home opener or something, but instead 24 games later and it's still here.
The MSG intro is the best where they show the construction and the awesome little music thing and then "Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to Madison Square Garden: The World's Most Famous Arena!" That's awesome.
I agree, it's worn it's welcome. I always though the music sounded like a sappy version of the gladiator theme.
Maybe the Rangers should hire LeftKinger I liked his video in this thread http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=406478 It got me pumped up before the season started. Boy I'd give anything to feel that good about this team and their chances for this season again.
