Well Joe, I guess I have to give you s pass on the Devils, but I can't give you a pass. on using the phrase "When I was a Ranger Fan". But I am sure you are a hockey fan. Funny you mentioned ticket prices for the Rangers. I was looking at my framed season ticket we got from Rangers when they won Cup in 94. Blue seats Sec. 410 Row A seats 3 and 4. were $22 a seat, and now they are over $100. And finals in 94 against Vancouver they were $32. Maybe next season we can meet up at MSG for a Ranger Devil game?

Joe, you are not even reading what I said about the Islanders, I had no harsh words for the Islanders team, just their fans. I admire what the team did, and said that their phony fans didn't deserve a team like that, and I explained why. And I will tell you more about their fans. First of all when the Islanders came into the NHL, you could go to any game, any time and the pick any seat in the house. They had no fans, the place was empty. But when they were on their way to winning their first cup, these phony fly by night fans who didn't know $het from shine ola about hockey came out of the woodwork, for 4 years, after they stop winning and were not in the hunt for another Cup, the only time they sold out was when they played the Rangers, and that's because there were more Ranger Fans then Islander fans. And I will give you another example. When they were going to retire Denis Potions Jersey the Islander players, Nostrum, Gilles, Butch Goring were at the Hicksville LIRR Station giving out free tickets to the game, so they could get a full house to come, at that time the Islanders weren't even in the playoff run. Well I took a ticket and went, and there was about 5,000 other people there. Where the heck was those die hard phony fans when they were winning 4 cups.

And I will go one better Joe. I use to take the LIRR to work in those early days of the Islanders, and their was these 2 loud mouth Islander Fans, that I would argue with, and they said they were die hard Hockey and Islander Fans. Well in 75 when JP Parise scored that great OT goal to beat the Rangers and knock them out of the playoffs. Well the next day, those 2 guys, one who was Italian, came on the train, looking for me and he had and Italian Flag. I said what the h ell is that flag for? He is screaming and waving the flag in my face and yelling J P Parise. I said you dumb SOB, the guy is not Italian, he is French Canadian, and can't even speak English, he speaks French.

And as far as Billy Smith goes, there isn't a goalie in the NHL today that couldn't win 4 Cups in a row with the team the Islanders had, and as good as Smith was, he couldn't even lace Lundqvist Skates. You want to talk about great Hall of Fame Goalies, you need to talk about Toronto's Johnny Bower, or Montreals Jacques Plante, I love this game of hockey and watched some of the greats play this game, including the best over all player to ever play that game, The Great Mr. Hockey himself Gordie Howe, no one better then him. And that includes 99. It's 2016 and they are still trying to break Gordie Howes Records.Gordie Howe was 50 yrs old playing for the Hartford Whalers and scored close to 30 goals.

 

And trash talking Lundqvist as being over rated, is typical of a Devil Fan. LOL Just like I would say, Marty, aka Fatso, was the most over rated goalie in the NHL.

Now go home and get your f ing shine box Joe. LMAO.  




Hey Tony.


 I didn't like Billy Smith but he was a great clutch goalie. I never saw a goalie have a better Stanley Cup then he had in that last Cup win against the young Oilers. The Oilers totally outplayed the Islanders that series. They were flying all over the place and the main reason the Islanders won was because of Smith. He was unreal that series. The start of the Oilers dynasty who blew them away the next year.


 I remember that JP Parise goal to. I was in shock they knocked off the Rangers.


 I started watching the Rangers in the early 70's. It was a different game then. So much faster now. I thought Eddie was great and remember that home coming game. I think all 3 were real good but winning a Cup is huge. Tough call.




The games faster today Yank for a variety of reasons,,,,players? Yes......rules? BY ALL MEANS! getting rid if the red line for off sides passes sped the game up and also slowed it down timewise due to the increase in icings,,,,,,,youre 1000000% rifht about Billy Smith.  Tony.....Old time Ranger fans are to NY hockey what Mets fans are to NY baseball......LOSERS! Lmao ....and in your zeal to dis Marty, the best of all time, you fail to mention, Roy, Hasek, Dreyden, Espo and a host of other greats. 





Oh Joe, I can name many more goalies, like Glen Hall, Terry Shawchuk, Bernie Parent, old time hockey and Ranger Fans like myself, what we forgot, you younger guys, especially you Devils fans, you have to learn. LOL.



And while we are on goalies again, as you know Joe, I was brought up in Astoria Queens, and the goalie on my team was Sal Messina, aka, Sal Red Light Messina. Who was the house goalie for the NY Rangers, and if  you or Yankko are too young to remember what a house goalie is, I will tell  you. In the days of the orig. 6, each team was only allowed to have 1 goalie on the team, and every team had to supply a house goalie when you were on home ice, he would sit in the stands dressed to play, if any of the goalies on either team got hurt and could not continue. The original house goalie at MSG was Schafer, then Sal took over. No team wanted to use a house goalie, I can remeber games when Chuck Rainer was the goalie for the NY Rangers, and in those days they wore no mask, Well he got hit in the face with a puck and needed stitches, they would stictch him up in the net, so the house goalie wouldn't come in.



And BTW, this old time Ranger Fan, had season tickets from the 50's and gave em up in 1996, but I was there in 94 to see the Rangers win the cup. And I still go to games. And I never miss a Ranger Game. Now if being a die hard hockey and Ranger Fan, makes me a loser, I am proud of it, and consider my self the best loser in hockey. Now as far as you and the SwampRats and their fans, like I said, they won the cup on a Saturday Night, and Sunday Morning, no one gave a $het. So Let it Be written, So Let it be Done.

I didn't know that about the house goalie. Interesting. I could see why nobody wanted him in the game. I can't imaginge how the goalies played without masks. Have to be pretty tough or nuts to do that.

Well yank40, Jacque Plante of the Montreal Canadians was the first goalie to wear a face mask, in 1959. He got tired of getting his face full of stitches
He also was the first goalie to play the puck behind the net and stick handle the puck, in front of the net. Also he was the first goalie ti raise his arm to let his team know there was an icing.
Another thing you may not be aware of is in the early days of the original 6 they knew nothing about slap shots, they would only use wrist shots until Bernie Boom Boom Geffrion of the Canadians discovered the slap shot. Just FYI yank40

Well, yank40, if you are interested in learning a little more about the great old days of hockey, you might like to pick up 2 of my favorite DVD's.

The first is from Rival Films, "Hockey's Greatest Era 1942-1967" 


 

And my all time Favorite, of one of the greatest hockey playlers to ever play the game Maruice the Rocket Richard.

THE ROCKET 9

(THE LEGEND OF ROCKET RICHARD)


 

If you get the Rocket, I would suggest you watch the original version which is in French with sub-titles, but has a lot of english in it.

There are quite a few NHL players in this movie, like:

Mike Ricci plays Elmer Lach

Vincent Le Cavalier Plays the great Jean Beliveau

Ian Laperriere Plays Bernie Boom, Boom Geoffrion

And Sean Avery, who plays the big tough enforcer many years ago  for the NY Rangers Bob Dill.

 

I am sure you and Joe also would enjoy both these DVD's. You will see why they call Maurice the Rocket, and why he is one of the greatest of all time. And why they call it Hockey's Greatest Era 1942-1967 (Because it was)

 

Something both you and JoeG will certainly enjoy.

Thanks Tony. 


 When I was a kid in grade school they used to pass out this sheet for a book club and I always ordered the sports books. Read ones on Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull. I'll check out the Rocket. They made an actual movie about him, shows how big he was. The Habs had so many great players. The Yanks of hockey.

One more thing about the great Rocket, which you will see in the movie, he is the only hockey player, when they announced the the 3 stars of a game, he was picked for all 3.
