The matchup doesn't guarantee anything but it would definitely have a lot of potentional considering how large the populations of both areas are. That's a lot of local viewers that can be attracted.
In any case, NHL has their TV deal in place so I don't see any reason why any fan should care about the ratings of any particular match-up if not to take a shot at particular fanbases and their appeal. A Devils/Yotes final will not bankrupt the league nor will it to cause legal controversy that would jeopadrize any current contracts in place. So again, why do fans care? Just enjoy the hockey. It's not our job to worry about the business.
