Are you also going to tell me the value of 2+2

The question is why the Dallas Stars have higher operating costs than other teams. That was implied by the post. From the same numbers, Washigton, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, among teams I checked each spent 5-10 million less on non-player operating costs.

As for the "fictitious numbers", they're from Forbes, they include operating costs.
