I doubt that since Rangers fans hate those 2 teams...and there are no other NHL teams nearby. I think the ticket prices in 2012 will surprise you...
No, they'll just watch on TV, just like how it is in Detroit. If you lower your price, demand will drop, we're dealing with an elastic good, this isn't gasoline, this is entertainment. Rangers fans may be crazy about their team, but they aren't nuts. Why would someone pay the same amount of money it currently costs to sit in the 200s just to sit in the 400s? Just imagine how high the price will be in the 300s & 200s if that's the case. Is someone really going to pay $4100 for a season subscription? I sure wouldn't pay double the price I do now and I'm sure most people wouldn't either.
