Back then everyone jumped on the "break the curse" bandwagon. It would be big, no doubt, and would probably get the NHL more exposure, and hopefully get a lot of coverage in NY. And I say "hopefully" cause they can't even get a full back page for playoff games anymore. 2009 against the Capitals was an absolute joke. They got "expanded" sky box headlines, while the Yankees and Mets got the full back page. How ridiculous is that?
Not sure why it wouldn't be as big as 1994. That's a premature comment. In 1994 we were the favorites. Sure there was a curse but we were the favorites going in. This time around if we were to win the cup (God willing) we more than likely wouldn't be the favorites so it would be that much more sweet. The city and the league would be buzzing for sure- like never before.
