Hey smart guy, the business is THE WHOLE LEAGUE, not just the Leafs. I guess you'd prefer to just watch inter-squad games in the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey League?

Well, I knew I'd face ridiculous claims on a Leafs board, but I guess I underestimated by a bit. How exactly are the Leaf fans paying for other fans' admission?

In a true revenue sharing system, that might be partially true; however, what is on the table is not that. The only thing that is going to happen under a cap is that MLSE profits will go up, since their payroll will decrease. They'll still sell out every night. Leaf fans aren't the most discriminating individuals.
