Meanwhile I talk to a decent amount of people that are Hockey fans and watch the Rangers though it's nowhere near the level that we follow the team.

While the media doesn't cover it much and it seems like in afterthought in the paper, Hockey and the Rangers are a lot more popular in the city than people give it credit for.
Exactly. I live in Florida where it's 90 freaking degrees everyday, and not counting the Lightning, you see more support of hockey teams than basketball. Compared to seeing somebody wear a shirt of a team from the NHL compared to the NBA, it's basically 5 to 1. If not more than that. Again, not counting the Lightning.
