Exactly what I've been trying to say.
In simple terms, think of it as with Los Angeles & the relationship between Lakers/Clippers or Dodgers/Angels.
Will the Rangers fans invade Barclays regularly? Of course, but who cares?
Now, the Isles will be in position to sell out games vs. the Debbies, the Flyers, Pens on a regular basis. Not to mention the other marquee teams.
