I don't know if I'd go that far, New York is an extremely expensive city and many "average" people were priced out of MSG years ago.

However, the cost of tickets has not been the main reason why people have stopped buying: it's because the Rangers suck and have been lousy for years now. When the team was coming off their Stanley Cup win, the wait for season tickets was over 4 years and tickets for EVERY single regular season game sold out on the day they were placed on sale. The Rangers were one of the hottest tickets in town and this continued for years. It's only in the last 4-5 years that it has changed and it has everything to do with the way the organization has performed on the ice.
