Not sure if you can say there's no curse. There's two weird incidents that possibly resulted in the Rangers not having a cup from 1940 to 1994.
From Wikipedia: Curse of 1940
During the 1939–40
season, the mortgage on the Rangers' home arena, the third Madison Square Garden
(built in 1925), was paid off. Hence, the management of the Madison Square Garden Corporation symbolically burned the mortgage in the bowl of the Cup. This led some hockey fans to believe that the Cup, which is regarded almost as a sacred object, had been "desecrated," leading the "hockey gods" to place a curse on the Rangers.
Another theory is that the supposed curse came from Red Dutton
, the coach and general manager of the New York Americans
, for whom he had once played. The Amerks were actually the first NHL team to play in New York City, beginning play as soon as the Garden opened for the 1925–26
season. However, their original owner, bootlegger Bill Dwyer
, found the going difficult with the end of Prohibition
, and the NHL took over ownership of the team in 1937. They made five playoff appearances, including a quarterfinal loss to the Rangers in 1928–29
and a quarterfinal win over the Rangers in 1937–38
. However, after beating the Rangers, the Amerks fell to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks
in the 1938 semifinals, the closest they ever came to winning the Cup.
Following the 1941–42
season, many NHL players entered the armed forces to fight in World War II
. This hurt the Americans more than the other teams, and so Dutton announced his team would suspend operations for the duration of the war.
He was named NHL President upon the death of Frank Calder
in 1943, a post he held until 1946, when he resigned and was replaced by Clarence Campbell
Dutton had resigned the league presidency with the intention of reviving the Amerks. However, the league, with the encouragement of Garden management, reneged on a longstanding promise to allow the Amerks to return. A bitter Dutton declared that the Rangers would never win the Cup for as long as he lived. He died in 1987 at 88.
At that time, the Rangers were in their 47th season without having won the Cup.
Depends on how superstitious you are.
