1.8 B is the revenue of the league. Guess what 40% of that was from 7 Canadian teams. How much do you think the "tv deals" (if it exists) of these "large markets" (not large HOCKEY markets) earn since they expanded to the south since 10 years ago? You talk about money, when majority of it was from traditional markets.
