A bigger Ranger Rival: The Islanders or the Devils

Simple question for all you Rangers fans. At this moment, who do you consider a bigger rival to the Rangers -- The Devils or the Islanders?

Could non-Rangers fans refrain from voting? Thanks guys.

It's the Islanders, It's been the Islanders for long. Devils won't ever be our biggest rival, unless something drastic happens, and one of their players pull a Potvin or something.

By far the Islanders. It's not even close. As much as Devils fans like to think they are our biggest rival, they pale in comparison to the Islanders in that regard.

I just think that the actual fanbase has the most authority on the matter. You know, hence the post on the Rangers forum.

Wow, i didn't know polls weren't public. Anyway, i think we all know the answer. Have a good night. Your team is playing so maybe you should be watching that.

There is no doubt among the older generation of Ranger fans it's the Islanders, after that I dunno.

You shouldn't even be reading this thread. Go back to New York, Islander fan.

I dont see whats so hard to understand here; I am asking Ranger fans who they consider to be a bigger rival. Islander and Devil fans have nothing to do with the answer ... you can vote if you wish but it only clouds the results (which dont look like they need much padding). That is all.

Coming from a fan of the Avs who play in COLORADO! BTW, I hope you forgot your sarcasm emoticon.

Right, which I said you should have made clear. Had i known that, I would not have voted. Just take my vote away, that's all. Oh and King Isles' vote too.

It's equal to me. I know the Islanders are the traditional rivals, but since I became a fan in 1993 they've been far less relevant than the Devils. So I guess they balance each other out.

Now are the pointless and *****y sarcasm posts out of your systems?

Having been to both games at the Debbies and Icelanders stadiums against the Rangers, by far most arrogant, trashy fans belong to the Icelanders. No offense to the Icelander fans, as I do realize there are some good people who like the Icelanders.

He wasn't being rude when he asked for it to only pertain to Ranger fans, why are you being so defensive


I'm 22, been following the Rangers since 92', and for me its the Devils.

Probably because I live in western NJ, and most people that I grew up with were Devils fans.

I think that location has a larger part to do with percieved rivalries

I asked for ALL non-Rangers fans to not vote, silly.

No offense taken. I think most NYI fans would same the same in reverse about the teams' fanbases.
