$20 million increase is low. Contracts typically have a big increase every time a new one comes up, and this time you have to keep in mind that a 7th Canadian team has been added.
My guess is somewhere between $275 and $350 million for 5 years. The competitors for this contract can go high and turn their sports channels (even moreso) into 24/7 hockey during the regular season to make up for what they need to bid to get the contract.
