I'm pretty sure Edmonton does fairly well too, but chooses, like the Bruins, not to spend it. So Canadian teams can make money and compete under this CBA, surprisingly enough.
Yeah but they've almost lost a few teams, like Ottawa. And we almost lost Edmonton a few years back.
The point I was trying to make was you could compare Toronto and New York and give them the same ticket prices, same payroll, same attendance, and Toronto would be the one spending more money on their payroll once you convert all that money
