Who is Cheering for NYR because you hate BUF?

Recommended Posts

Couple of questions here since I'm not one of the biggest canes' fans, plus I'm newer to the board:

1. Is this Sabre rivalry cause of Lindry ruff and last years playoffs? I can understand hating Lindy Ruff, he's a joke and a whiner. But why do Canes' fans hate the Buffalo team so much?

2. Why is Cullen called "He-man"? I love this guy, but didn't know he had a nickname. I thought he was just called "Culley"

their fans came to our arena and basically tried to trash the place. it wasn't a few bad apples but easily 50-60% of their fans, it was almost as if they let everyone out of the buffalo jails and gave them tickets to our home games. by game two the southern hospitality wore off, saw one whole row of slugs fans escorted out of the building because one in there group was acting up.

I guess it's a combination for me. I actually like a couple of the Sabres players and their style of play. Not a fan of Ruff though or the lunatic fringe who go all soccer hooligan here.

Then there's the obvious Canes connection with Cullen, Malik, etc. As a quick point, I'm not sure why Canes fans are including Shanahan since he never played for Carolina. Bringing him or Nylander or other ex-Whalers into it seems to a stretch, like an Avs fan rooting for a team that might have an ex-Nordique player. Doesn't make much sense.

Avery alone won't unravel the Sabres but this round could show there lack of grit of physical presence that was never replaced last year.

Me, but I'm also pulling for the ex-canes: Cullen, Malike, Weekes.

I'm looking forward to this series. I'll miss the first 2 games as I'll still be out of the country, so ya'll will have to keep me updated with some good recaps.

who on the board is cheering solely bc of there dislike of the sabres?

there seem to be a lot of ranger supporters on the board, but that doesnt surprise me much.

I am cheering for NYR just bc i dont like BUF

Not me.

I just hope to see an exciting series and don't really care which team wins. I do tend to support the underdog though, in this case the Rangers.

Yea, well buffalo is known to have some of the mos tclassless fans, and can be a quite trashy. I've been to the city numerous times. So anyone know why Cullen is called "He-Man"?

Also, for people hoping Kevin Weekes can get a Cup, he is now the 3rd string goaltender. His name would not be on the Cup. Probably would get a ring though.
