Example from Finland, Jokerit budget for this season (at the start of the season) was income of 8 156 000 euros which was comprised of 3 275 000 in ticket sales, 4 046 000 in sponsorship plus 865 000 of "other income". Expenses were the same as income, of which 3M was player salaries. Those figures were of course before the NHL lock-out. I don't recall what the tv deal was worth but each club got somewhere between 200-300K IIRc.
