NHL revenue reports

Forbes has the final revenue data for all 30 NHL teams from the 2005-06 season, numbers that give you a good idea of who was on the receiving end of the league's new revenue-sharing model.

The fact is on the top7 revenue teams we have 5 come from the Original Six. Peoples love the classics.

Other fact, Canadians teams like Montreal and Toronto will share money with american teams like Islanders , Nashville and Pheonix instead of Canadians teams like Quebec or Winnipeg, place where each game would be sold out.

Is there a breakdown of where the revenue sharing money is coming from and going anywhere?

I don't think you can say that Forbes has obtained the revenue figures. This table was part of their valuation issue. I'm surprised an enterprising reporter does not ever seem to get a copy of the actual unified report. There must be dozens of copies floating around.

Anyway, three points. Forbes revenue and hockey revenue as per CBA are different things. Add up the revenues and they are about $100 MM too high.

Second, I have a hard time taking them seriously when Minnesota and Calgary are as low as they are.

Third, these revenues are net of revenue sharing. The Islanders did not qualify for revenue sharing. If we want to accept these numbers as some kind of ballpark, Nashville revenues were the worst because their $61 MM includes $12 MM in revenue sharing.

In other words, with their scintillating EBITDA, the Leafs have P/E ratio of 8, and the Red Wings have a P/E ratio of 44.4. I sense a market correction coming, Wing fans....

Oh, sorry. Back to your regularly scheduled hockey-related programming
