Just Give It Up

Recently I noticed something Leaf and Rangers fans are always arguing about which team is better. However, I think it’s pointless because both teams stink, something several of us can agree with. Rangers: Haven’t made the playoffs in 6 seasons. They are living proof that you can’t buy sucsess. Every year we get are hopes up and just get let down. We all talk about who we just got and what we have on paper but it means nothing. We get a new coach woo hoo we are gonna win now OOPS sorry nope.

Toronto: Haven’t won a cup in god knows how long. At least they make the playoffs. Even when they do they dissapoint there fans by not doing anything during the playoffs. Then every year the trade deadline comes along and TO fans get excited about the rumors but most of the time nothing happens.

If thats not enough proof then your all in denile. Im not saying dont back up your team I will no matter how many years they miss the playoffs. Im saying how about we stop beating around the bush and all admit that are teams let us down game in game out and year in year out.

    laid part, good, Leafs part, horse manure

  3. G_Money says:

    hmmmm lets see. The Leafs i think BEAT the Islanders out a few years ago, and have never done worse than the Isles in the last like 5 years. I’d shut the old pie hole.

  4. G_Money says:

    The Leafs sucked about as much as team USA did against the Canadians, right?

    ouch, I am trying to forget about that.

  7. G_Money says:

    Chris, that gets you banned!

  8. Goldenscud says:

    yes in deed. We need more laidness on HTR! Bring out the hos!!!

  9. G_Money says:

    dont be harmed, I am English! We dont even have a hockey team, I dont think me telling you that even matters. lol

  10. Goldenscud says:

    You have Manchester United though, right? Best Football team on the planet (well, after the Eagles!!!)

  11. G_Money says:

    There is only one Ronaldo!

    Listen just because the Yankees have had the most money doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve bought their championships. Ruth was traded from Boston, Maris from Kansas City, Mantle was free agent pick up, Berra was a draftee, DiMaggio the same. Free Agency wasn’t around back then. So there was no way to buy players. The Yankees have had the best organizational skills and management skills of any sports franchise, ever. They are the dynasty, and they are the dynasty because of great management up in the front office translating to great play on the field by inserting the right guys in the right spots and getting the right reaction. When you play for the Yankees you know to play 100% or you’re gone. New York changes players like the average person changes underwear. The Rangers are the same way, but they haven’t had a winning formula. They haven’t had a great coach since Mike Keenan. Bad business decisions will keep the Rangers from winning the cup, it’s as easy as that. Because like you said, hockey is more of a team sport than baseball is. One guy who doesn’t play the way the team does throws off the whole team. Neil Smith decided to break up a team chemistry, trade away top young players such as Tony Amonte, Doug Weight, Sergei Zubov, Todd Marchant, and Alexei Kovalev for older, on the slide players. Glen Sather is doing no better, following in his foot steps. Plus he’s spending loads of bucks on players who are producing jack-shit. It’s not really the players themselves who are the problem, it’s the front office.

  13. Goldenscud says:

    yeah, he is something.

  14. Goldenscud says:

    yeah, you are right. However, teh Flyers whopped both of their candy asses!!!! Boo Yah

  15. G_Money says:

    did you see him? Those stepovers, wow!

  16. dkball7 says:

    Just to let you know… Im a HUGE Yankee Fan!!! I have been since I was born. Plus I totally understand what you are saying, but unfortunatly you are talking to the wrong person about the Bombers. 6 game winning streak and counting!

  17. G_Money says:

    actually I substituted the parts of the word into symbols. Lol

  18. G_Money says:

    That may be, but at least my country never lost to Canada. Oh


  19. G_Money says:

    You see, you as a Flyers fan, starts goin nuts about beating the Leafs out. But lets think, I believe they did better than them for the last what? 3 years?

  20. G_Money says:

    seems to be a thing in NY eh?

  21. Goldenscud says:

    add up the combined records and you will clearly see who the better team was and is and will be!!

  22. BosBrn77 says:

    How could they? Oh


  23. BosBrn77 says:

    Shitty coaches? How about too many head cases! How can you blame Lowe? He did well in Edmonton with less talent. And even though Trottier was a rookie coach, he had two assistants that could coach any team.(Schoenfield and O’Reilly) The Rangers problem is trading the wrong players and bringing in guys who don’t play every night.

    When I posted this, I thought I could get a good discussion going. It was just a simple rant, but I thought it worked.

    I’ll do better next time.


  25. Lint07 says:

    It’s alright DG, My comments weren’t that much about you.

    I was just pissed that all the good writers that work their asses off to write something good had to see so many useless post in a row.

    I know it must be hard to draw a line sometimes.

  26. G_Money says:

    Ok, i am not liking this whole I hate Leafs, Leafs blow thing.

  27. 94cupchamps says:

    Sorry bro but about the only team the Leafs can beat in the playoffs is the Islanders. You are going to miss Laviolette.

  28. 94cupchamps says:

    Sorry to burst your 2003/04 Cup dreams but in case you haven’t noticed, the Leafs absolutely did not get any better therefore they still DO suck.

  29. 94cupchamps says:

    Gretz, I agree with you on the Smith/Sather thing. I do like what the Rangers did this season so far although it isn’t enough. They got a couple of good young players. I hope their top pick works out. Remeber though that the trades of Amonte, Weight did lead to a Cup.

  30. 94cupchamps says:

    The result is still the same, no cup for you!

  31. 94cupchamps says:

    Jofa, this is the most intelligent post in this whole thread. I agree with many of your points. I hope the Rangers stop looking to overpriced veterans and start using some homegrown talent. A good coach who had a great defensive system wouldn’t hurt either.
