Last year the league had HHR of 3 billion. Next year they have HHR of 3.3 billion. That is an increase of 300 million. Toronto, Montreal and the Rangers each account for 8% of that 3.3 billion. They are each required to kick in 8% of 300 million, or 24 million. Columbus, NYI and Phoenix each account for 2% of 300 million. They each kick in 6 million.
Every team contributes their portion to come up with the 300 million, then that 300 million is divided evenly amongst all 30 teams. 10 mil to each team.

It doesn't seem like $10 million will be enough for some of the smaller teams. It would be a drop in the bucket for teams like Phoniex & Buffallo. Any Devil fans reading this don't take this the wrong way. $10 million wouldn't be enough for the Devils owner right now. He would still be $10 million short in meeting his team obligations for the Rock.
