I always think, for any team, its strictly city and state. So just NYC and NY areas.
NJ maybe when the Devils werent around but not now. Connectictut had the Whalers and I think is mostly Bruins too.
I do know Upstate NY identifies with the "New York" part since its still New York State. Buffalo has WNY and SO. CNY is split between Sabres/Rangers.
Oddly, two cousins of mine born and raised in the Utica area are Islanders fans. Id attribute that to growing up in the 80s though.
