and what? even if the ticket prices have been increased by 140% .. it's still a huge way behind the fixed costs increase by players salaries.. and further disturbing: ticket revenues are not fixed per team.. a bad year and they are down.
everyone knows that the NHL is a gate revenue league.. it doesn't have the huge tv contracts like NFL and MLB.. and never will since it's a niche sport in the US.. it has to generate most of its revenues from ticket sales.. these numbers show that the NHL business isn't working with high player salaries or even worse increasing salaries.. but heck, the players keep on dreaming/living in wonder land.. fighting their employer.. till they ruined their employer's business.. they will cry wolf when there's no league left to pay their high salaires :-) looks like this day will come sooner than later...
