I think the 12 of 30 owners losing money is misleading due to the HRR calculations. Some of the owners are making money off the arenas, parking, or other concession deals.

The 57% business model is completely unsustainable to be sure...I just don't think the 50% with +/- $8M is future-proof. I'll bet in eight years the owners will be opting out of the CBA as the small teams will be losing money again.

Of course, at this rate I'm not sure they ever top $4B in profits. I wouldn't be surprised if $3.3B is the high water mark for the next several seasons. Take a bow, NHL.
