McD Learns Meaning of Potvin Sucks Chant

potvinsucksOn the eve of the latest chapter in the Rangers/Islanders rivalry, Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants had to explain the meaning of the “Potvin Sucks” chant to Ryan McDonagh…

“…I asked McDonagh if he’d heard the Madison Square Garden chanting “Potvin sucks” at every game. McDonagh said he had heard it but didn’t know the meaning.

He said he figured it had to do something with “the goaltender.”

I told him, no, it was not that Felix Potvin sucks. It was that Denis Potvin sucks and that it came from the Islanders defenseman putting the Rangers’ Ulf Nilsson out for the season with a hip check on Feb. 25, 1979.

Of course, that was almost 10 years and five months before McDonagh was born.”

…i hate to kill the Rangers on this, but shouldn’t they give the rookies a little course on the Rangers history and the chants they may hear at MSG. I’d love to hear McD’s thoughts on Dancin’ Larry.

…nice try by McD with the Felix Potvin guess. At least he was an Islander.
