... but if the NHL could accurately project revenues, we wouldn't be in this mess. They failed to project the 30 teams revenues out over the length of the CBA and see where the 57% HRR split CBA would end up in 2012.
In defense of Hamilton, (and I'm grasping at straws here to counter your point) the NHL isn't so much projecting revenues with Hamilton, as they are comparing the southern Ontario market with existing hockey markets.
Is that different enough?
But, aside from assigning them a ranking of 5th in revenue, is there really any doubt that Hamilton/southern Ontario is probably one of ,if not, the best hockey market in the world?
