Yeah, Gresch and MDZ are somewhat alike: I've had the thought before.

But, you know, I was in the blueseats for many years among fans just as critical as those today and I really don't recall any great animosity towards Seiling. I know how Ranger fans can be particularly in regards to certain defensemen. In fact, the guy I recall everyone getting on during that era was Dale Rolfe. Even Park came in for some criticism, fans seeming always to want more from him. But that might have been frustration from him not being Orr and us never winning the Cup. But Seiling.....I just don't remember any great dislike of him.

I was in section 432 between the red and blue lines on the side of MSG behind the benches. Maybe each section or sections had their own whipping boy.
