1. Yes, the Habs have a beautiful practice facility. 2. No to their own TV channel, it would be somewhat more difficult because the fan base is split between 2 languages and I'm not totally sure how valuable Leafs TV is anyway, it's a nice piece but it's no where near the driving force behind the 1B estimation.
The Leafs prices are definitely higher than Montreal's. It seems the Bell and Rogers purchase elevated the Leafs value, seeing as last year I think they were listed at being worth 521 million.
To the person that said the Habs should be closer, they'll probably close the gap a little bit next year because their local TV deal with RDS is set to expire and will be worth a lot more but it's hard to imagine the Habs getting over 700-750 million. The Leafs are clearly the most valuable team in the league either way.
