You want a spectacle, Rangers-Canadiens in Central Park.
I'm one of those weird Yankee/Mets fans. Partially because my dad was a Mets fan as my grandmother liked the Dodgers and my grandfather liked the baseball Giants. My mom is a Yankees fan. We had the Saturday plan for the Yankees and the Sunday plan for the Mets growing up.
I don't see the difference where the game is played. A sheet of ice is a sheet of ice. It doesn't matter where the game is played as long as there are a lot of seats to watch it. If you would boycott the game because it's at Citi Field... then I wouldn't call you a Ranger fan.
AND I think it would be awesome to have a Devils/Rangers game at GIANTS stadium for the Winter Classic. But that's just me.
