I'm sure some of those fans will make the ride... but unless they're a playoff team come 2015, who is going to be their core fans? I'm not sold on the idea that the Brooklyn neighborhood is just going to all of a sudden start supporting a team, when they've already had access to teams that are pretty close. Also, it's not like Jay Z has an ownership stake in this team so that marketability doesn't apply to try and draw fans.
I'm with you. I am pretty sure most people in the New York region that don't live in Long Island or Brooklyn are/will be Rangers fans.
