Once more then:

When Geoff Molson paid 500 million for The Habs and the Bell Center, he put in a purchase price that reflects the total value of the franchise and the arena. If you want to be a child and say "no no no no", then be one, but that doesn't change economic reality. Molson is not going to pay 500 million for two properties worth 300 million as you're arguing when you say "no they aren't", he has a lot of advisers and lawyers.

The reason Molson would have paid less if the players were still getting 72% is because the return on the investment would be that much more pathetic. With a greater share of HRR, the value of one of the best teams in the league increased.
Now you're confirming the point you disagree with. You are arguing that the price of owning a team reflects its value, whereas previously you said "no they don't".

Here's some advice: find out what your position and then argue for that position. Don't just argue both sides of the position so that you can you disagree with every point.
