Hen-rique vs. Hen-rik

(as a quick aside; this is my first fan post. So please excuse me if I'm not up to par with some of the etiquette.)

Recently the play of rookie forward Adam Henrique has led to some chants of  "Hen-rique (clap-clap)," at Devils' games. Though at first I didn't think any thing of this, it appear as if these chants have created some contention due to their similarity to the Rangers' "Hen-rik (clap-clap)" chants, (obviously alluding Rangers' goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.) 

Some have been arguing that there is no relevance to the similarity. That it's simply just Devils' fans showing their appreciation for the play of Adam Henrique. Meanwhile others (such as Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy, and Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record) have been claiming that the chant is largely to mock the Rangers' "Hen-rik" chant.

Personally, I never realized the similarity until now, (considering I don't attend Rangers' games.) I was one of those who thought it was simply just fans showing their appreciation for Henrique's play. Additionally, it even mentions in this ILWT article about the Supporters Section that one of the intentions for the upcoming season will be to chant a Devils' goal scorer's name after the goal announcement. Last season there were even some "Ko-vy" chants after a few of his goals. However, the contrast is certainly there, and it isn't often that Devils' fans will pass up an opportunity to get under the skin of their "most hated rivals".

 

 

So what do you think? Obviously there's no right or wrong answer here. Different fans might partake in the "Hen-rique" chants for different reasons. So I'm asking you.
