The Leafs, Rangers (last Stanley Cup in 1994) and Canadiens (last title in 1993) account for 83 percent of the league's income, with Toronto the most profitable franchise at $81.9 million, followed by the Rangers at $74 million and Montreal at $51.6 million.

More reason to put a another team in the GTA and Quebec... Basically right now 2 provinces in Canada consisting of 1 team each account for roughly 60% of the leagues income.........

another reason this league needs to be run by a Canadian...and the head office in the city where the cup came from.

Bettman has failed and its costing the richer teams. He needs to be fired and the failing teams removed and replaced with Canadian teams.

Most of Buffalo fans are Canadian....

Once again Labatts you have come up with an interesting and informative topic. and i totally agree with more canadian teams and i also agree that an american in charge of our game is completly wrong on so many levels. This dic is ruining our game with all these lockouts,strikes etc. The problem is that more american teams are voting losers like this into the power base of our game. He is the biggest problem in the game,but not the only one. the players i believe do not realize what they have and its a lot. But greed has overtake their thoughts also. both sides better get it together before too long or this game may be hurt badly for many years to come !
