You're going to pay the exact same price regardless if there's RS or not. Teams charge as much as they think the fans are willing to pay, not less, not more. The only difference is how much of that is profit to that team, and how much goes to help the league that your team is part of, for the betterment of the league in general.

So that begs the question...
if the leafs owners have to dish out an additional few dozens of millions of dollars for revenue sharing... wouldn't they just increase their ticket/hot dog/beer prices in order to make up the difference?

Increased revenue sharing is so unfair to the fans of rich teams that it's just sickening.
Then you should be happy that Toronto isn't charging as much as they could be. And I've never had an issue getting tickets when I was in Toronto. Only been a few times, yet still watched every game I was in town for.
