To be fair... the $125m ticket tax can easily be considered Katz. Afterall, as an example, if the max ticket price someone will pay is $100, and there is a $5 ticket tax included, that means the max the team can collect is $95 per ticket.

So directly and indirectly the Oilers are contributing about 55%.
