He'd be paying 10-20M$ for a draft pick that might make his team a dominant one in the NHL. When you generate more than 2M$ of revenue at every home playoff games; the extra 7-8 NHL series that draft pick might give you may turn into (3x2M$)*7 --> 42M$ extra revenus. Also, playoff games are the cheapest for owners since they don't pay full salaries to the players.

Plus derivatives like jersey sales.
