The Rangers will always be a hot ticket especially with the team set up to be good for the next 4-7 years and maybe longer. They make a fortune because they own there own TV Network. Ticket prices will go up but compared to other teams they are not outrageous considering this is New York(and I am not comparing them to NJ or NYI). The majority of the profit from the Rangers derived by MSG is not from ticket sales. STH,s always win when there is more demand and the team is good. The person getting screwed is the fan who wants to go to a few games a year and not the STH if the tickets are more in demand but the STH is the one laying out the money ahead of time thus assuming some risk if the demand is low.
