I can't see how the Rangers aren't at least the visiting team next year. They have to get the two teams who would draw the most ratings in order to make that new TV deal look more attractive to potential bidders.
St. Louis is a decent size, but I see where you're coming from.

Could easily make the Rangers the visitors, though I get the sense that NYC is going to want to be the host the first time they do it.

Perhaps they bring the Kings out to Minnesota as the visitors. #2 media market in the US right there.
