WTF do the Rangers get all that dough to burn?
I think a lot of it comes from luxury box revenue, although, I don't think it's a guarantee that they are rolling in money though. Their recent ineptitude has probably cost them a lot of money. They are willing to spend though, since if they ever do put together a winner, they will start seeing the cash roll in. New York is a lucractive market, and the Rangers are the primary team. They are probably making a profit right, but it's probably not what you would expect, given how high their budget seems to be.
