- expansion fees are not part of HRR.. so don't need to split with PA
- every owner gets a cut of the pie, relocation not so
- TO2 expansion value is worth minimum twice any other city in NA.
Double the Maple Leafs' revenue seems like a good number for a team with no players, no front office, and no employees? I can see 400 Mil (or so) total for the team:
100m expansion fee, 75m to the Leafs, 25m to the Sabres, 100 mil for the arena, and 100m for players/ employees.
