For comparison, each NFL team gets approximately $63 mil per season from their TV contract
IMO, this is just not a significant factor
You are forgetting all the companies that sponsor the NHL in order to get to use the logo. And the CBC contract. By my estimate, shared revenues are about 20% of the total.
