3 Finals games + 6 other home playoff games. Revenue for those has to easily be in the $40M range. That's what, 2/3 of their payroll costs for the entire year right there? This is all above and beyond all of their other revenues for the entire year.

Like I said, NFW they lost money this year.
I think you're really overestimating how much the Kings made off of playoff tickets. Brokers jacked up the price incredibly high, but with the 10-game plan we paid $95 for our Final tickets.
