i'm sure there is a qualifier somewhere. Tack on a "...versus our last playoff year." at the end of "The wild are losing $10 million..." for instance.

i heard every playoff game is worth around $2 million to the team*. It's one of the main reasons you'll never have an owner/GM tank to reload for a cup run when they have a chance of even making into the first round. Mediocrity is profitable as long as you're in the top 55%.

*heard this from a staffer on an NHL team. and it was two years ago so who knows what it is now.
