they are bigger in NY than the Papers or TV media would indicate.

They way they play is more in line with the working class people of NYC than the flashy name players Sather tried to put together pre-lockout.

The radio/print/TV media have not yet gotten behind them because there's not that one major names star that they can latch onto.

These venues want someone like a Messier that can put up gaudy numbers regardless of team success.

They do a poor job promoting a winning team as opposed to a special talent
