I think what a lot of people need to recognize is that revenue streams are up this year because of the strong Canadian dollar. It actually hasn't been much to do with the U.S. market at all. I will say though, that in defense, the salary cap has been a big bonus. But it has to be stressed that the Canadian dollar has helped generate revenue in a big way. A lot of the Canadian owners are paying less out of their pocket for American salaries and that's going to be big. When you consider that at one time, the Canadian dollar was only worth 67 cents American and now it's nearly 90 cents American, that's a big chunk of change that Canadian owners are saving.
