Rangers' success good for NHL

Great article by Micheal Farber on CNNsi.com

It is true, the NHL needs the Rangers to succeed. Gotta keep winning for the league to survive

1. New York is the largest media market in the world.
2. Lots of media exposure would greatly help the league.
3. The league needs a lot of help.

Agreed. But the NHL doesnt have to make it this blatantly obvious that they want big market teams in it! I congradulate the Rangers on destroying the Thrashers, but that Cullen game winner went over the line just as much as the Islander goal went over the Ranger goaline last month. It's obvious the league will go out of their way to have the big market teams in it. They cant make it this obvious

the sad thing is - you probably really do believe that.

the fact is, even if the Rangers were to win the next 3 cups, the US tv ratings would be basically where they are now - in the toilet.

be happy your team is doing well. but the delusion is downright scary.

True, but dont agree about the jersey/new york part. Bergen county is responsible for half the workforce in new york city. just had to put those two cents in.



But otherwise yes!

The Devils are victims more of their perceived style of play and their stadium's exact location than their state. Islanders success would generate buzz, too.

I don't get how the league is making it obvious. Maybe the media are making it obvious...

Sure as hell not the damn refs from last night. Just like the fitting chants from last night "THESE REFS SUCK!"

Hilarious. Usually people demand some kind of article/source when trying to prove a point.

Get a grip.

The best view, the camera from above the net, defenitly shows that the Islander goal never passed the line. It can't be disputed, that puck never passed the line.

Last night you again got a camera view showing that the puck DID pass the line.

The only problem you got is that it was close, obviously you got some problem processing that.

Here is how you should do:
1. From one angle you can't say if its a goal.
2. From another angle you can see that its a goal.
With this info its possible to tell that its a goal. Like our goal last night.

1. From one angle it looks like its a goal.
2. From another angle you can say for sure that it was never in.
With this info its possible to tell that its not a goal. Like Islanders goal against us.

When you get older and read about logics in school you will under stand what I am talking about.

Let's put it this way...It definitely doesn't hurt to have the biggest media market in the country involved and giving the NHL coverage..I think all fans of the NHL should understand that..No I don't think it will be a boost in tv ratings, but I do believe that it helps the marketablilty of the sport...Congrats on the win..you've waited a long time for that...

LOL, way to send the kid back to school Ola! But I think he's a few years away from logic.

You're right, jerseydevil, there's a lot more to NHL popularity than a lot of the boring media (SI, ESPN) make of it. There are a lot of marketable teams in the NHL, but they need results to make it happen.

Chicago is the team I think of the most. They have a long history as an Original 6 team. They were very good in the old Belfour, Roenick and Larmer days, and a lot of people love their jerseys. Chicago were a cool, marketable team. The NHL should mandate that Wirtz allow home games to be broadcast on local TV there.

Then there are some of the newer teams, like San Jose. They quite popular, locally, their logo is cool, they've got stars on their roster and they are in a decent market. Anaheim might not be a romantic-sounding team, but they're a strong team that's a lot of fun to watch in a good market. As for Dallas, I think it's a huge pity that they moved from Minnesota, but my friends from Dallas tell me that the support for them down there is surprisingly strong.

The more popular these teams become, the better they are marketed, the more momentum will develop for league popularity.

What are you High, That puck was completly over the line, what does it matter if it was on edge or not, I knew it was goal the second it went in.

Take your Ranger hatred some where else Rookie

I disagree completely. If the Rangers win the next there Stanley Cups, ratings in NYC and AROUND the country would improve significantly...

the truth is this sport was never more popular in america or generated more buzz than in the summer of 1994. and i agree with whoever mentioned the blackhawks. i think that team needs a serious intervention. it is a real damn shame what has happened to that franchise since that idiot got the team. i mean its a crime really to be sitting in a great market but putting a lousy product year in, year out with no signs of hope. the kings are another team that i feel must be good for the league to generate more ratings and popularity.

I'm still trying to figure out how some people are disputing the fact that having the biggest market in the country interested in the playoffs isn't good for the league.
