The Rangers really took the country by storm that year. Now I'm sure alot of it had to do with the personality and name recognition of Mark Messier as well as the whole 1940 thing, but come on...you had Jeff Beukeboom in Sportscenter ads, you had the Rangers win 'Team of the Year' at the ESPY's....YES, A HOCKEY TEAM won Team of the Year on ESPN.
The team won an ESPY and Beuk was in a Sportscenter ad equals "took the country by storm"?
What you presented is proof of how little impact it had anywhere other than in NYC.
