New York isn't that much of a hockey market, compared to those other places.

Don't get me wrong, the Rangers have a very sizable fanbase. But the NYC market is HUGE and the Ranger fans are a small proportion of it overall. I live here. There's a lot of other sports and teams, and hockey is pretty low on the totem pole. But that's OK - you don't have to be #1 to be successful in NYC. Even if only 1% care about something, that's still a heck of a lot of people.
