I haven't checked the math, but I read on twitter that player salaries have grown 33% in the last 8 years and NHL revenue has grown 50% over the same time frame.

If you take that to be true, then players have seen their profits grow 33% and the league has seen their number one expense grow 33% and their revenue only grow 50%. This leaves the NHL with a potential profit growth of 17% if the cost of doing business hasn't grown at all. Does anyone think that the cost of doing business as fallen the last 8 years? Doesn anyone think that the cost of doing business has fallen 16% to make up the difference of the two sides?

With this information, shouldn't the NHLPA be the ones giving most of the concessions?



I don't know a lot about the other sports, but does anyone know what the salary versus revenue split is for the other major sports the last 8 years? Or where to find the financials of the other sports (other than google )?
