The New York Media..

could care less about the Rangers. The Rangers cannot make it to the back page of the Post, meaning, there's little interest out there.

But honestly, New York demands a winner, who doesn't? The fanbase of the Rangers isn't elastic enough to endure seasons of losing. Rebuilding was/is an option, but one doesn't know the outcome of rebuilding - heck, the team could be worse-off, believe it or not. And nobody's going to attend games of a team that keeps losing, even if a bunch of kids are trying (especially in New York where there's just so much more to do). The stands will not be filled every night. And guess what, if this was Carolina, or some other cities in whcih a team goes 7 straight without playoffs, there's a chance there's no team in that city, or the team would be sold. There aren't many out there that will support losers for a long period of time.
