D. Players get a playoffs share on top of regular salary.
E. You still have expenses during playoffs its not all straight revenues.
F. Merch not bought at team LA is shared throughout the league.
G. Parades cost money
I'm not so sure about that one. I thought I heard over the last few years that the NHL playoffs are not "extra" salary for the players. I don't think there is a "winners and losers share," like there is in baseball & football.

Geez, now I feel somewhat guilty at the Staples Rally that the Kings concessions stands sold all their food that day for half price.
