Because they pay 1/4 of the salaries of the Yankees, yet rake in the same percentage of the massive national TV deal.

In the NHL they have to pay something close in salaries (something like 75%, not 25%) and collect far less from the national TV deal (which pays some teams entire payrolls in MLB).
