Forbes has released its annual list of NHL teams’ worth. It listed the Toronto Maple Leafs’ value at $1 billion, the first NHL team to reach that mark. The Leafs also had a profit of $81.9 million last season. During CBA talks it has been claimed three NHL teams account for 83% of NHL revenues: Toronto, Montreal and the Rangers. Judging by the Forbes’ data it’s not hard to believe.
The Sabres are ranked 22nd on the list with a value of $175 million and an operating loss last season of $10.4 million. I wonder if the NHLPA is willing to take half that revenue?
