Does anyone know of an educated guess at what they made this past season? "Not very much" seems like BS, but this IS Lawless we are talking about here. Of course maybe we don't know what Gary considers "hockey-related revenue".
Forbes has estimates but that's all they are. Also fiscal year doesn't match with season start/stop.

But I wouldn't doubt it. The TNSE business model was made with having to take from revenue sharing and that was probably with full gate revenue.
Someone estimated the NHL league as a whole to be at a profit margin of 3%
