I can't remember if this was among all 30 teams or just the Canadian teams but Winnipeg did rank #1 in terms of merchandise sold and it makes sense since their fans would want to purchase jerseys, hats, shirts and etc. So based on that fact alone there is no way Winnipeg could rank 3rd last in total revenue.
