Exactly. I grew up in DC from 89-2004. I attended many Rangers and Pens games, and it was 55/45 NYR or PIT to Caps fans, the only times they sold out was when:
PIT/NYR/PHI/DET where in town (wonder why lol!).

I went to the Caps Rangers game in December of 2007. They had an announced crowd of 12,000 (for a Rangers Game!).
This was year three of Ovechkin.
They never cared until well into having Ovechkin, because they are bandwagon.
