The Rangers are a badly managed team. Yes, they do turn a profit most likely. Yes, they do generate a lot of revenue, but most of this is due to how lucrative their market is to begin with.

If they were able to put out a better on ice product, they would be making a heck of a lot more money. This is why they are poorly managed. They are not maximizing the income from their franchise.

In fact, if you tried to rank each team by looking at what each team could be making with optimal management each year versus what they are making, the Rangers would probably top the list with the biggest gap. The only team I could see competing would be the Blackhawks. This is why they are always considered to be among the worst managed teams.
