Yeah but 300 million is nothing. The NBA has similar salaries, similar expenses and has over 900 million from the national tv deal each year. And even it isn't in great shape but it's much better than the NHL will be over the next decade.
Being locked in to just under 200 million each year in national tv money for the next decade is a killer. The LA Dodgers alone will bring in more from their regional deal.
The tv deal is unacceptable for a league the size of the NHL that is in all the big US markets. Its pathetic.
