I don't think you're right on this one. He knows what the Kings' revenues are and he knows what the NHL's revenues are. He can guestimate the revenue of other clubs based on the number of season tickets they sell and the prices of those tickets, as well as doing some math on the Canadian to US dollar conversion.
It might be a guess, but it's pretty damn educated.
Also, the 2010-2011 cap won't be based on season tickets sold in 14 months from now.
