Popularity boosts when a popular player from the country signs for the team. Rangers were poplular back in the nineties when they won the cup but missing the playoffs for so long is not good. People without favorite teams tend to look at the "good" teams instead. Like Detroit, Colorado or later years Ottawa. Rangers are popular in sweden again because players like Nylander and Lundqvist play for you. And famous players like Jagr.

The teams we feel stronger for are the favorite team in our country. Like I feel as much for Frölunda Indians as you do for the Rangers. But I cheer for Rangers now cause they have Lundqvist. And If he stay there for long Rangers will get deeper and deeper in my heart.
