Also note that the fact the teams made 300 million dollars is in addition to the fact that franchise values rose dramatically. This is an unseen profit that is under-reported in the media and basically ignored by the NHL when it spins its economics.

As I posted earlier, in MLB, the Dodgers went from a 450 million dollar purchase to a 2.15 billion dollar sale in the course of 8 years. Even if that team didn't make much money over that period of time, the value of the franchise rose by over 600%. The value of the Leafs increased by 92% (!!!) to 1 billion dollars in the past YEAR.

If they stop front-loading contracts, which hampers yearly income, then the league will be even healthier.
