"The NHL projects revenue will grow 4 percent this year to $2.7 billion, with about $675 million coming from national and local television. The NFL received about $3.7 billion in national television revenue this year."



Says 675M from national and local TV. It's higher now but gives an idea what the total TV revenue was like 2 or 3 years ago.

With NBC & NBCsports at 200M now instead of 70M.

Local teams renewing with higher premium on sports and CBC coming up.

Annual revenue could hit 1B / per season soon.
They'll certainly get a boost from New Canadian contracts coming in 2014, but a lot will depend on what local contracts change.

If a team like Chicago were to have a contract year this year it'd be huge. Their ratings have been nuclear.
