now i need to start playing hockey again, been a few years, but now i need it lol
I'm with you.

I also firmly believe that if New York (the Ranger fans) shut the Final off and it did like a .7 in NYC, you'd see some changes in the way the Rangers were treated by the league. Very few fans of other teams actually watch the NHL after their team gets eliminated. Ranger fans have ALWAYS continued to support the game even after the Blueshirts have been eliminated. I honestly believe the reason teams like Pittsburgh have been treated the way they have is because the league knows the ratings the Penguins pull in Pittsburgh, but also knows the ratings Pittsburgh gives the NHL when the Penguins aren't in the playoffs.

Ranger fans, if you want to be treated fairly next season, SHUT OFF THE FINALS!
