Know what, this is the reason people think New Yorkers are arrogant and self absorbed, hell the Devils play IN the New York Metro Area, maybe instead of crapping on them every chance the local media could try building them up.
The Rangers dont need to appeal or be recognizable to anybody outside of New York. Their local numbers alone make them desirable to ad execs.

Same with the Kings.

The Devils dont draw locally as well as the NYR or LAK. They dont draw nationally as well as the NYR or LAK.

If the Devils had a recognizable star like a Crosby or Ovechkin, it might help.

It has nothing to do with arrogance. It's business. Simply stating that a NY-LA SCF would generate more buzz and money isnt being arrogant.
