The available numbers suggest the NHL is a more gate driven league than the other major US sports. Around 50% of NHL HRR comes from gate receipts--that includes corporate purchase of tickets and suites.

I don't have the exact figures at hand for the other leagues, but I believe the NBA is next in the mid to low 40%'s with MLB and NFL below 40%.
