I generally add half of the gate total for in-arena receipts, so another $20 MM (to be on generous side). Add NHL revenue sharing ($8-10 MM per team), and if they're not in the bottom 15, no revenue transfer, that's still under $70 MM.

If they were in the revenue transfer recipient pool, they wouldn't qualify for a full share if attendance has been declining. The highest amounts transferred wer $14 MM, iirc.
I'm not sure where you're getting that average from, but even TMR has it at $57 - and we know that's low due to how they calculate things.

That's gotta be a kick in the pants. Teams really need to have control over things like this to have much of a chance at breaking even.

I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
