What's to "believe"? Facts are facts. Most teams run at a deficit and need auxillary income from other related ventures (like Melnyk owning the SBP) to yield anything at all.
Hell, the Sens as an organization would be ecstatic to make 5 million dollars a year when all is said and done...about one less million than the GUARANTEED 7 million that Jason Spezza will make.
I don't begrudge anyone for making that kind of money, but I find it hard to stomach that most teams make no money at all, yet every single player (whether injured, or lack of performance) gets a paycheque dropped in their account.
