RANGERS VS. ISLES

RANGERS VS. ISLES

   Forget the regular season, forget winning the NHL's best record:

The Rangers are shaking in their skates.

   I saw this coming from three weeks ago, when the Isles got hot and the
Panthers faded into their true mediocrity:  the Isles nailed the #8 spot,
and are slated to play the Rangers.

   Now, I am a HUGE Islander fan; I grew up in Plainview, on Long Island in
the 70s and 80s.  I was there before the Cups, and went to highschool the
specific four years in which they won their four cups.  I would hang out at
Cantiague Park in Hicksville during Islander practices.  They would wander
into the parking lot after their session and talk to the few fans that went
there, signing autographs and talking hockey.  I have a program at home in
New York with the autographs of Bossy, Trottier, Gillies, Nystrom, Potvin,
Billy Smith, and many others.  So, I am biased.

   However, I will proclaim it now, loud and proud:

THE ISLANDERS ARE GOING TO DEFEAT THE RANGERS IN THIS PLAYOFF SERIES.

   There is no arguing the ability and skills of the Rangers players; they
have a solid team, great leaders, solid goaltending.  But, the Isles have
their number down cold, and they going to beat their rivals in a tough series.

   Some predictions:

The teams will split the opening games at the Garden.  The Islanders will take
two at home.  They will go back to MSG and the series will end, Isles 4-2,
maybe 4-3 if the Rangers get 2 games in Nassau C.  Then, the shit is going
to REALLY fly, what with the media covering both the Knicks and Rangers down
to the last detail, analyzing their every move.  They will get is BAD.

Yeah, the Rangers were shaking in their skates ... not. Looks like the only
numbers the Islander players have are the ones on their backs. Let's hope
they have the decency to at least show up for the next couple of games.

Very interesting split at MSG-NYR 12 NYI 0.  What does that indicate about the
rest of your prediction? Sorry but sometimes the better team does win.

Merton:
  I think you're responding to the wrong person. I'm a Ranger fan, not an
Icelander fan ... Rangers are looking real good for a sweep. If the
Rangers sweep, this will have to go down as the worst Islander playoff
series ever - how sweet it is !

:  
Looks like the Rangers are finally taming the Isles.  I thought that
the Isles were the perfect candidates to upset the Rangers.  Looks like
I'm wrong.  Not only are they winning, they are soundly beating the Isles.
 The scores say it all!  If the Rangers can keep this momentum going then
watch out!

Uh, WRONG.  17-1, 3-0- THAT'S 'nuff said.  Deal with it, pink boy...
<grin>

Seriously, I'm convinced that we'll NEVER hear the end of 1940.  Morons
like this guy will constantly remind us even if we win the damn thing 5
years in a row.  Does it have anything to do with that Potvin thing?  =)

  Nah, I think it has to do with stupidity, and the inability to deal
with the fact that his team SUCKS!!!(3 goals in 4 playoff games,gotta be
a joke, the team sucks)
