The NFL's CBA has an estimated value of 12-16 billion dollars per year. The NHL's is worth ___? I'm guessing NFL players earn more than NHL players and the reason for that is that the NFL is a much more profitable business than the NHL. Main reason for that is the American market which the NHL is trying to tap into. It just won't succeed in Phoenix and Florida (imo). Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm fairly new to the subject and don't have much experience but that's just how my feeble mind sees it. There are so many factors involved it's easy to lose track
