Here again you don't factor in how much a team will lose in revenue if all they are doing is spending way below the existing floor and putting a sub-par product on the ice. NHL revenues are driven by the live gate. To get people to attend in person you have to ice a competitive team.

Why do you feel the playoffs were mediocre?

One team kind of dominated the way you would like to see the Leafs dominate.
