In the NHL revenue sharing is where Toronto, New York, and Montreal take a bunch of the money they make because they are big markets and have fans and give it to the 10 or so teams that can't charge more than $40 for a ticket so they can almost break even.

In other leagues there are many teams that make big profits and HUGE tv deals to split up. In the NHL it's basically stealing from a couple teams to prop up a bunch of failed markets.
