Plus, over the last year or so, trains the E and F seem to run local in Queens every second day (especially when coming home from the Garden)

As I said. It's tough to maintain such a large system, but I've seen other cities do it better. Never been to Ottawa, but Montreal's is much better in comparison.
Montreal metropolitan area population: 3,635,571
NYC metropolitan area population: 18,897,109

Montreal metropolitan area size: 1,644 sq. mi.
NYC metropolitan area size: 6,720 sq. mi.

Tough to compare the two fairly given the massive differentials in size and population of their respective metropolitan areas.
