I also really don't think regular season AHL games will draw nearly as well as the playoff games last spring did (now that was a good move--showing the fans some of the fruits of rebuilding), much less as well as NHL games on TV.
Not saying anything of the sort Brook.

My point is, it does satisfy the fans to some exent. It also makes sense in that the fans get a glimpse of the Ranger future. Hell, a lockout might even be good for the Rangers from an on stand point. And because the Rangers made a lot of moves for the future, the fans are anxious to see the players that they got (Liffiton etc.) It makes sense that it also introduces the kids to Ranger fans.
