The rangers now practice in greenburgh, only about 10 mins away from rye. So this change shouldn't be much of a factor.
I think a lot of it has to do with age, most the rangers are under 25, single, and only a few are signed for more then 4 years. I am willing to bet most of them Rent and don't own. Not to mention unlike baseball, football and basketball, many nhlers have offseason homes in there home countries, slovakia, sweden, russia, etc.
We really don't have many players who have been on this team, for more then 4 years. Just wait I bet now that Lundquist just had a kid he will be moving out of the city, and to some suburban area.
