An important question (Somewhat Pens related)

Postby smoothmoneyb on Thu Jan 24, 2013 8:07 pm

I'm about to watch the Rangers Flyers game, but can't decide who to root for. On one hand, seeing the Flyers start out 0-4 would bring overwhelming joy to my heart. On the other hand, if the Flyers win both the Rangers and the Flyers will start out 1-3 which would probably be a better situation for the Pens. But I just hate the Flyers so much! Of course any type of overtime situation would be the worst case scenario. Please help me decide!

Absolutely. I'm pulling for Rangers in regulation. The farther back the Flyers fall, the better. We match up better vs. the Rangers, I think.

Yes.

I have never, ever hated the Rangers the way I have always, and always will, hate the Flyers.

I was kind of thinking along the same lines as well.. another reason to root against the Flyers

Although I'm fairly certain that there is probably some kind of board rule that prohibits me from posting actual game links, there are numerous ways of watching online..

You hated the Rangers after Adam Graves broke Mario's wrist. Admit it.

Yea, I'm not too worried about it. The Canadiens/Capitals game has become amusing to watch. Plenty of other games to occupy my time.

No it didn't. But from the beginning, this was pretty much a win-win situation. Who here wouldn't have been ecstatic to have both the Rangers and Flyers start out the season 1-3!? Now the Pens just need to get their heads on straight, play like they care and pull out a win against the Jets tomorrow night. This is another team that they should not lose to. Hopefully last nights games was a little wake up call and a reminder that even the bad teams are capable of winning unless they (the Pens) bring their 'A' game every night.

this.
My friends who are Rangers fans want me to hate them but I don't. for years I've enjoyed watching them try to be the NY Yankees of hockey (by attempting to buy a championship) and failing miserably because hockey is a game that relies on chemistry rather than individual skill.

Anything but OT was fine. Flyers winless or both clubs at 1-3. I'll take it.
