I always assumed they sold out... no matter what. Even if they were in last place, just because its the "thing to do" in NYC some nights. Sit back, talk to alot of strangers while watching some team play some sport on the ice.

EDIT: Yes they have... my bad. But they never had a season where less than 97% of the seats sold.
So many of those tickets are sold to Joe Wallstreet and some other suits that rarely come to the games unless the team is hot. Same phenomenon with the Knicks- you see sellouts but rarely a full house.

well said!!!!

i swear last night i was the same way, up 2-0 i still had an uneasy feeling

I booed the Rangers last night, more than once.

In my mind booing shouldn't discourage the team, it should be a wake up call. Booing is a fans way of saying "Play harder jackass"

boo your own team? yeah, that will help!

c'mon, you may as well not show up - and ultimately it'll only hurt (and 'wake' anybody up) if people stop coming to the games or buying tickets - but we all know how likely that is to happen in NYC.

idk what team your watching if you have'nt booed them recently.. they constantly leave me with an empty feeling everynight i leave MSG..

trading jagr is a moronic idea, he has'nt been the jagr of last season.. but without him we're definitely about 10 points worse..

But then the team wouldn't be fooling themselves into thinking they might still be buyers. That's the problem with having Jagr on the team...with him we will never be good enough to win it all, but we'll never be bad enough to truly build the team the right way. It's a catch 22.

Like I said b4, I love Jagr. I don't want Jagr traded because he's lazy or whatever labels people are giving him. He is are team. Shanny isn't period.
But I still think he should be traded in the interest of the future. Next year he is 36. We may as well deal him while his value is high along with our other high value players...Nylander, Shanahan if healthy, Ward, Cullen, maybe even Straka.
We would fetch a ton for Jagr... I would even rule out a Thomas Vanek or a player along those lines...but it would definately include a good young player, a bluechipper and a high draft pick. The others could also garner alot if Craig Rivet was traded for a 1st. My point is that if the Rangers sell their vets for youth and picks, we will have a future. Also it frees cap space to sign a Scott Gomez, Datsyuk, and maybe even pack our blueline full of talent because a solid blue line behind Lundqvist would make us contenders in 4 years.

Maybe booing will make the Rangers think they are playing on the road. This year, that seems to be the only way they can win.

Don't want Briere. Good hockey player, don't like him. But Datsyuk is an UFA isnt he?

Eh whatever go Drury go.

Whats this? The thread for the "I got as much IQ as a fishstick club"?

Yeah, we are 17-13 on the road and 12-14 at home. This team, with all their flaws, have worked pretty darn hard all season long, and gotten zero support on home ice, which itself could be as big of a factor as anything why we aren't gooing to make the PO's.

Now we are gooing to boo them even more? You guys are unbeliveble.

Good to see threads like this, atleast you will see true colors of some fans and bandwagoners
Calm down people...is it just NY who booes in NHL their best players?
Don't you think this is related with NYR p*ss poor home record?
Support mentality is different there...

Ranger fans have been booing for 10 years now. I think the only thing that could fix this team is to flat out stop buying tickets.
I got booed regarding Jagr many times at the begining of the season , as I'm sure we all recall.

I don't believe in booing our own guyss in the middle of a game, though. I always felt bad for guy's like Nedved, and Poti, and especially Weekes - how are they going to turn things around if they feel like no ones with them? Don't get me wrong I vent my fustrations, at every game whenever Malik does something stupid, but a whole arena of your own fans booing you has got to be rough.

The one exception to this rule is the PP. I'm sorry, but the team needs to continue to hear it, when they just stand around not shooting. They know what works, at what doesn't and when they insist on going back to that pitiful excuse for offense they need to hear our displeasure.

Or maybe they play so well on the road because they don't get booed.

As long as they keep playing boring, stupid, not passionate, not emotional, not physical, and most of all, not winning hockey...they can expect the boobirds

You pay your money, you have the right to boo, IMO. Admittedly I don't go to a lot of games (and that is by choice) but I would have no problem booing lack of effort — because that is controlable.

And I think that's the benchmark that most Ranger fans use. The team worked hard game in and game out last season and the fans recognized it. That was best demonstrated with the huge "Let's go Rangers" chant at the end of game 4.

"...with all their flaws, have worked pretty darn hard all season long"

Maybe if they didn't stop slacking off in the 2nd and 3rd period of numerous amount of games, the team would be higher in standings.

"...gotten zero support on home ice"

18000 people (who are probably mostly Rangers fans) pay money to go watch you play a game. That's support already. And not to mention the fact that when the team scores a goal, the whole arena goes crazy.

To boo or not to boo, is an individual fans choice. An underachieving, unemotional, lay down and die at home team, will get some in the crowd booing. When fans stop booing an individual player, and start booing the whole team, it sends a message that something needs to be done. NY has shown all season, that it is not capable of rewarding it's fans, at a home game, with effort/talent/willingness to play hockey for 60 minutes.
