It is not all about Ranger fans, but what works for all teams in the league. At issues are travel times, developing rivalries, enhancing the whole league not just what is best for Rangers fans. I am a Jackets fan and I would still like to see Nash at least once a year in Columbus. Is that too much to ask out of an 82 game season? In the west we miss out on Stamkos, Ovechkin, Crosby, Kovalchuk, etc. These players are marquis and should be enjoyed by the league
fans entirely. You still would get four or five divisional games.
