Something flying under the radar is the enormous financial gains made by the team in the last 4 seasons. The Caps sell out now, despite raising ticket prices for 3 or 4 straight years. Whenever they renegotiate the TV contract that's going to go up too, because ratings are way up. And if Ted wants to make his own local sports channel, he has a winner to build and market around.
All of these things mean money in Ted's pocket, and they raise the value of the franchise, which means future $ as well. Maybe Dick Patrick gets some of that credit, but most of it flows from putting a winning team on the ice, and that's what GMGM has done.
I'm sure Ted is appreciative.
Sorry if this sucks, I wrote it on my Droid.
