Hello fellows! You may not know me and you probably don't care to know me, but I am Tim and write junk about Winnipeg Jets hockey over at your SBN Winnipeg Jets affiliate.
I just finished penning a snarky piece on the CBA negotiations and in the process I did some math that I thought might interest you schmucks in T.O.
Based on Forbes estimates the league's 30 teams make a grand total of $126.5MM profit. That isn't very much. If the league decided to go full communist with their revenue sharing, that would mean 126.5MM divided by 30 or 4.2MM per team. I really can't see any of the profitable ownership groups letting something like that happen.
Revenue sharing may increase, but it won't likely be the key to resolve this CBA nonsense alone. Where do you folk stand in the player / owner dispute? Where do you guys stand on revenue sharing? It doesn't look like a communist NHL would be to friendly to the Maple Leafs.
