I was actually thinking a couple days ago of posting a poll here to see who stuck to their promise to boycott hockey and/or hockey merchandise purchases. I bet it was almost nobody.
For a team like the Rangers, it is good because they do not have to pay rent. Teams that have to pay rent were much more impacted.
