Even the Rangers.

Only possible exception would be Winnipeg, and that's only because they still have a new team smell and their fanbase is so deliriously happy to finally have a team back that they'd accept anything. Probably won't be like that in a decade, though.
The Rangers? They didn't win a Cup in 54 years and they sold out. They also missed the playoffs in the late 90s/early 2000s and they sold out. Don't try to lump us with Chicago.

Do you have any evidence whatsoever to support that claim on the Rangers? Didn't think so.
