uhh - nope.

That article does not say that the Canadian team's gate revenue generate 30% of League $3B+ HRR. It says that the then-six Canadian teams generated 31-33% of the leagues $1.2B in ticket revenues.

The confidential document shows that the six Canadian NHL clubs last season accounted for about 33 per cent of the $1.2 billion (U.S.) in league ticket revenue. In 2007-08, Canada's six teams represented 31 per cent.
