That depends on the TV deal cancelled. If the Leafs had a TV deal worth $45 million that was cancelled, then the Leafs would lose $45 million in revenue. The players would lose 57% * $45 million = $25.65 million. Or about $855,000 per team. So the Leafs would lose about $44.15 ($45 million - $855,000) and all the other teams would make $855,000 (by having their expenses lowered by $855,000).

If it was a national TV deal worth $30 million, then each team would lose $1 million and would have the effect of reducing each team's cap by $430,000. So each team would lose $570,000.
