Two things. It is my understanding that the Forbes estimates include the debt of any arena costs as well. Including renovations. Vinik just dumped nearly 50M into that. If thats true then they really made quite a bit of profit from actual hockey.

As for the fans, the things they rate them on are ridiculous. Prices of things? Like the fans have control over that. And since when are cheap things (read: not ridiculously price gouged things, Im looking at you Toronto), a bad thing? Attendance we were 96% full and in the middle of the pack last year, on a team that didnt make the playoffs. And TV ratings? That would completely depend on the TV market available. Its just very arbitrary uncontrollable things for them to rank the actual fans on.
