"To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy." Sun Tzu (544-496 B.C.)

Author of The Art of War, the ancient Chinese General undoubtedly knew a few things about combat. And the timeless strategies he provided in his legendary tome can also be applied in modern times.

Particularly by the most heated rivals of the New York Rangers.

Unfortunately, the National Hockey League is involved in a lockout that will keep the puck from dropping for an indefinite period. Not exactly the ideal circumstances for teams looking to beat the Blueshirts as often as possible.

By finishing first in the Eastern Conference last season with 109 points, the Rangers will have 14 teams looking up at them when play eventually resumes.

But there are five franchises in particular that are most upset about losing out on their opportunities to beat Gotham's best.

Read on to find out who they are—and how Sun Tzu's tactics directly apply to their quests to conquer the enemy.
