The difference is that in Canada, the NHL is like the NFL. It's THE big league, so the ceiling keeps on rising. And some of these revenues -- National TV, merch, some sponsorships -- go into central revenue, so American teams benefit financially from growing the game in Canada.
But Canada is changing. And hockey is expensive. The US school system is better for growth then the CHL.
