"The why do the Rangers still sell 80% of their tickets while being the laughingstock of the NHL? When you combine the record they have had over the last 7 years, they have got to be in the top 3 of worst overall records, I highly doubt that folks would stop coming, if that were the case they would have stopped 2-3 years ago."

You are still not talking about watching scab labor. That is an entirely different animal. The Rangers WILL sell their tickets for fans to see Rangers play. However, said fans are not paying NHL prices to see scab labor. That is if they are paying anything at all to see it.
And you're probably right about that. But I would plop down NHL money to see guys looking to feed their families and giving an honest effort nightly.
