You're right that the costs skyrocket far more quickly than people realize..
So much so that $1.1M is bare bones. I would be pretty surprised if any team in the ECHL spends less than $1.1M in 2012-13..
The CHL, there might be a team or two around that level this year.. but not many..
No team at the AA level spends as little as $700,000..
There isn't a team with $700K in expenses anymore, however, there were fairly recently.
