The Leafs just happen to be huge. They're worth more than every NBA team apparently. And about the same as the Red Sox if we're looking at the Forbes numbers. So whatever argument you can make about the NHL not being a real league is not going to be based on the fact that the Leafs are worth the most money.
Well the MLB numbers are from last March, so when the new one comes out before the season starts, I'd bet that Boston will be valued higher. Same goes for the Lakers this January.
