So the issues of attendance and income don't seem to be a problem for solely NHL franchises.
Some NFL franchises have some attendance woes... tough to tell with statistics, though, because they often purchase up unsold tickets to make sure their game is televised.

MLB has some problems, which is offset by notable revenue sharing... and the NBA is a complete mess.
