I don't know what % the NHL team, has to help $wise with the AHL team, but, that part, I'm sure is something that they keep in mind
depends on each PDC, been, some affiliates had that right originally, but most have let that option be rewritten each time a PDC is either signed and/or extended as to what control the affiliate has in each case (mostly player signings).
