I go back to the late 50's with the Rangers in the old garden. I also remember seeing Glen Sather as a Ranger. Let me tell you that Sather would drop the gloves with anybody. He was more of a checking line player, never a big goal scorer. But He was a hard hitter who kept people honest. I remember when Rod Gilbert played his 1st game. The big thing then was no cable guys so no home games on TV. Sat night games in Canada were on TV sometimes tape delayed as well. I lived in the Bronx so when cable first came out, you had to go to Manhattan to watch a Ranger game.
That is awesome. You go back to the times of my dad. Do you remember Camile Henry? That was one of his favorite players. Slats was a tough player. I would bet there are many good Ranger fans that have no idea Slats played in the NHL never mind for the Rangers.
Hey Ranger fans. I have been following the ranger threads for a while and finally felt i had to join in! My dad has always had tickets and I never stopping loving the team.
1. I have been a Rangers fan about 20 years
2. Pavel Bure is my favorite Ranger because I grew up watching the video from the stanley cup season all the time and even though I am so happy we won... he was just so electric and exciting when healthy
3. My current favorite Rangers are King Henrik, Callahan, and Del-Zotto
4. I can't really pick a particular year but I will always remember watching Gretzky's last game which was exciting
5. If I could add anyone to the Rangers based on skill it would be Ovechkin, base on personal favorite it would be Nick Lindstrom
i used to play as the rangers in nhlpa 93 for sega genesis so i guess i started being a fan around then tho i probably started really following them around 99/00
growing up i always loved richter above all else
my favorite now is gaborik... loved him when he was on minnesota... ecstatic he's scoring for us now
wasnt old enough to appreciate the cup year so the first 2 years after the lock out are probably my favorite years cus we made the playoffs for the first time in a long time and then we took 9 of 11 games from the devils the next year lol
if i could add one guy to our team it'd be pavel datsyuk... hes everything sather imagined drury would be and more
My friend recently signed up, so I decided to get involved as well
Been a fan since I was born in 88, but didn't 'really' appreciate what I was a fan of until the early 90s. Parents were hardcore Rangers fans. Graves is my all time favorite - he's the man. Of course Richter, Leetch, Messier too.
Favorite players now are Gaborik, Hank, Dubinsky and Callahan. I like Dru and Staal too.
Didn't wanna open a new thread for something as meaningless, just want to mention it.
Just ordered from the NHL shop a Rangers sweater! It's the St Patrick's day one. I can wear it at local soccer/basketball/volleyball/anything games since it's green and also has the shamrock (see sig). Shamrock and the head of the Liberty Statue with NYR underneath
It was quite cheap so I didn't mind "trying out" the shipping. Gonna get a home jersey after this one arrives.
Also would like to ask a question on that. Do they wear anything special, like green jerseys, on St Patricks'D day? Coz I've seen many teams have these special green t-shirts, sweaters etc
