If you divided the money between 20 teams equally it would amount to $22 million per season. If the bottom 10 teams receive more on average, it could easily be around $30 million per team. It could be in excess of $30 million for the bottom 5 teams, if the dollars are distributed according to need.

Let me give an example

- $220 million per year in revenue sharing
- Bottom 15 teams in revenue eligible for revenue sharing
- Top 10 teams contribute $100 million into pot

1-10 teams: (minus 10 million per year)
11- 15 teams: no revenue sharing
16- 20 teams: 5 million per year ($25 million in revenue sharing)
21 - 25 teams: 10 million per year ($50 million in revenue sharing)
26 - 30 teams): 30 million per year ($150 million in revenue sharing)

That adds up to $225 million in revenue sharing.

And the NHLPA is asking for $260 million per year in revenue sharing per year, not $220 as used in the example above!
Maroons, I see what you are trying to do. However, I can't get your numbers to add up. You have 10 teams contributing 10M each. That's only 100M. But, the general schedule adds up OK.

I would prefer to see something else. I would prefer to see revenue sharing of this kind:
10% of gate receipts for each game to the road team. 10% of local TV contracts into a pool split evenly among all 30 teams.
