The Flames' amazing playoff run, which took them to Game 7 of the league final before losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning, was enough to cover the last two years of losses: an estimated $13 million.

In fact, King conceded that the small-market team will lose less money if there is no hockey this season: about $5 million as opposed to the $6.5 million that has become normal.
