Apparently it was $521 million. It's a little confusing to see how the Leafs' value almost doubled over one year. I'm no business expert, but the only logic seems to be that the 2011 valuation was probably a little low, while the 2012 valuation is inflated by the fact Bell and Rogers probably overpaid so that they could get whatever media/sports monopoly they're hoping to milk out of it.
