NHL Fan Demographics; Related Economics Sources & Strategy

1. Economic study on NHL fans

Average fan earns more than $75k (2008-2009)
Quote:
Visitors to the NHL's Web site have higher household incomes than visitors to the sites of other professional sports leagues in the U.S.
Household Income MLB |NBA | NFL | NHL
Less than $15,000 3.90% | 7.60% | 5.90% | 3.30%
$15,000-$24,999 2.2 3.9 3.2 1.9

$100,000 or more 32.7 | 27.7 | 28.3 | 36

Source: comScore Media Metrix

Marketing-research firm comScore analyzed online traffic to nhl.com, nba.com, nfl.com and mlb.com in the U.S., and found that more than half the puckheads had household incomes of at least $75,000. About 36% came from households making six-figure sums or higher. Baseball ranked second with 32.7 percent of its web-browsing fans in the $100,000 or more bracket, followed by football with 28.3 percent. Nba.com, by contrast, had only 27.7% of its users among the top-earning households, giving it the least-affluent fan base.

US National Broadcast Contracts

B. United States TV Contracts:

1) NBC:
-->2007-08: <$5 MM each ($3 MM per Brooks)

Looks Like NBC & The NHL Again Next Season
by Paul on 12/10/08 at 09:01 AM ET

via William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

The NHL is expected to extend its TV deal with NBC through the 2009-10 season. The profit-sharing arrangement has made money for both sides, but not a great deal. The NHL and NBC each earned a profit of less than $5-million (U.S.) from the 2007-08 season, according to sources.

The extension makes sense for the NHL, which would have games airing on NBC, the U.S. Olympic network, in January of 2010 before the hockey tournament in February.
http://www.sportsbusinessjournal.com/article/62192
Quote:
Under their current agreement, NBC pays for production costs of NHL games and both parties sell advertising for those broadcasts. The advertising revenue covers production costs first and the remaining profits are split 80-20 between the NHL and NBC, respectively.
http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...w-friends.html

2) VERSUS: $72.5 MM/yr


Note - both NBC and Versus contracts expire in June 2011.

Canadian National Broadcast Contracts

Rogers
12-year, $4.6 billion agreement

TVA






Historical:
Canadian TV Contracts: (all figures US$)

1) CBC/HNIC: $100-110 MM/yr

2) TSN: $33.5-50 MM/yr [6 yr term, 2009]

Links for 1 & 2:
Links: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...ts/Television/

Quote:
Neither TSN nor the league would comment on the money involved in the new deal, but sources estimate TSN will pay the league between $35-million and $40-million a year, bringing the total to more than $200-million, by far the most TSN has ever paid for NHL rights.
...
TSN also will air 15 Montreal Canadiens telecasts and 10 from each of the four other Canadian teams.
...
Seven of those TSN Leafs games are the property of the NHL, but the remaining 10 are regional games owned by the Leafs. TSN will purchase the 10 from regional rights holder Rogers Sportsnet. The NHL and the five Canadian teams outside Toronto agreed to allow TSN to take those 10 games nationally.

The CBC's six-year extension, announced last year, will kick in next season and cost the network about $100-million a year. The schedule will involve the Saturday night doubleheader, most of the Canadian content in the playoffs and exclusivity to the Stanley Cup final.
3) RDS: $15 MM/yr (total $35 MM/yr, but Canadiens receive $20 MM)

http://www.globesports.com/servlet/s...asketball/home
Quote:
Earlier this week, TSN's French-language partner, Rseau des Sports, announced six-year contract extensions with the Montreal Canadiens and NHL, beginning immediately.

The combination deal, involving both the club and league, is probably worth about $35-million — $20-million to the Canadiens and $15-million to the NHL.

RDS will air all 82 Canadiens regular-season games and a full NHL playoff schedule. The RDS sports news channel, RIS, will carry up to 55 NHL games and playoff matchups. Broadband rights are included in the agreement.

RDS president Gerry Frappier said increased interest by competitors in Canadiens television rights prompted RDS to expedite a deal with the club and league. Canadiens audiences over the past five years have almost doubled, growing from an average of 399,000 in 2001-02, when three networks aired the games, to 717,000 last season, when RDS was the sole carrier.

An option for Islander payments to shift from a flat fee to 18 1/2 percent of FSNY revenues was coming in 2001. Cablevision recoiled at the possibility of paying the Islanders 18 1/2 percent of total FSNY-MSG revenues. In the talks, the team got an extension through the 2030-31 season, which features yearly payments rising from $14.8 million next season and $17.5 million in 2000-1 to $36 million in the final year, and the possibility of lousy performances causing a breach disappeared from the final contract.

Guesstimating Effect of CAD:USD Rates on HRR (+ other exchange rate info)

1. Effect the USD:CDN exchange rate on HRR:

For those interested in guesstimating what effect the USD/CDN exchange rate might have on HRR this season, here are some figures to get you rolling:

08-09 season noon rates, 251 days, average $0.8625
09-10 season noon rates to date, 69 days, average $0.9135

You can estimate a final average value for 09-10 by plugging in your estimate for the rest of the 09-10 season.

Rate = (0.9135*69 + $ESTIMATE*182)/251

For example if today's closing rate of $0.9492 stayed consistent the rest of the season that would yield a final 09-10 NHL season HRR exchange rate of $0.9394.


2. Rates from Bank of Canada:
http://www.bankofcanada.ca/en/rates/exchange-look.html
CBA prescribes that the average annual rate for an NHL fiscal year be used, July 1 - June 30.


3. On the difficulty of predicting Exchange Rate fluctuations:

rates from BOC:
http://www.bankofcanada.ca/en/rates/exchange-look.html
I have used the figure of $8.5M for every 1 cent change in the $CDN. So using your projected figure of $0.9394 it looks to me like we would have about $60M US in additional HRR.

When do players get paid? What are their tax liabilities?

Players are paid every two weeks, over 13 weeks of pay periods in total (mid-Oct - mid-April).

Quote:
Originally Posted by CBA Exhibit 1 - Standard Players Contract
Payment of such Paragraph 1 Salary shall be in consecutive semi-monthly installments on the
15th and 30th day of each month following the commencement of the NHL Regular Season or
following the dates of reporting, whichever is later (provided that the pay period shall not close
more than three (3) days prior to payroll dates); provided, however, that if the Player is not in the
employ of the Club for the whole period of the Club's NHL Regular Season Games, then he shall
receive only part of such Paragraph 1 Salary in the ratio of the number of days of actual
employment to the number of days of the NHL Regular Season.
On Tax withholding:
Quote:
Of course, players are subject to withholding tax like the rest of us but an NHL player's paystub does not include just one line for tax withheld. In fact, players are responsible for paying tax in every state (and some cities) in which they play and earn above a certain income threshold. It is not uncommon for a player to file a dozen or more tax returns a year.

Historical NHL Franchise Sales, Relocation Fees & Expansion Fees

I. Franchise Sales - coming soon (all)

II. Relocation Fees:

* Carolina - $4m <year>
* New Jersey - $8m
* Colorado - $8


Quote:
The Hartford Whalers paid a $4 million relocation fee to move to Carolina, the Colorado Rockies paid $8 million to move to New Jersey and the Quebec Nordiques paid $8 million to move to Colorado — about 60 percent of franchise value, according to Goldfein. By that reasoning, if the Coyotes are worth Balsillie’s original $212.5 million bid, the fee should be $125 million.
http://slapshot.blogs.nytimes.com/20...ake-the-stand/

III. Expansion Fees - coming soon

IV. Territory Indemnification Fees - coming soon

NHL Revenue Transfer Program

I. Contributors & Amount Contributed


Quote:
The Canadiens paid the following amounts into the NHL revenue sharing pool in the four years after the lockout:
$9.6-million in 2005-06,
$7.1-million in 2006-07,
$18.4-million in 2007-08,
$8.5-million in 2008-09. That's an average of about $11-million a season, and, given their revenues, I imagine that means the Leafs paid more.
Toronto made $158.5-million in hockey-related revenue last season, by my count more than doubling at least half the league's teams in that regard.

Here's what I've been able to find available online so far:

From the William Daly declaration: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/v5/co...oyotesDaly.pdf
- NHL Constitution: pages 26-56
- NHL ByLaw 35 (Transfer of Franchise Ownership): pages 58-59
- NHL ByLaw 36 (Transfer of Franchise Location): pages 79-83
- NHL and NHL Enterprises licensing agreement: pages 61-77

- Complete NHL By-Laws:
part 1: http://multimedia.thestar.com/acroba...aabfd50c84.pdf
part 2: http://multimedia.thestar.com/acroba...ad66870a42.pdf
Added:
NHL Constitution Toronto Star:

When/how are players paid?

Players are paid every two weeks, over 13 weeks of pay periods in total (mid-Oct - mid-April).

Quote:
Originally Posted by CBA Exhibit 1 - Standard Players Contract
Payment of such Paragraph 1 Salary shall be in consecutive semi-monthly installments on the
15th and 30th day of each month following the commencement of the NHL Regular Season or
following the dates of reporting, whichever is later (provided that the pay period shall not close
more than three (3) days prior to payroll dates); provided, however, that if the Player is not in the
employ of the Club for the whole period of the Club's NHL Regular Season Games, then he shall
receive only part of such Paragraph 1 Salary in the ratio of the number of days of actual
employment to the number of days of the NHL Regular Season.
On Tax withholding:
Quote:
Of course, players are subject to withholding tax like the rest of us but an NHL player's paystub does not include just one line for tax withheld. In fact, players are responsible for paying tax in every state (and some cities) in which they play and earn above a certain income threshold. It is not uncommon for a player to file a dozen or more tax returns a year.

Guestimating the effect of USD:CAD on HRR

1. Effect the USD:CDN exchange rate on HRR:

For those interested in guesstimating what effect the USD/CDN exchange rate might have on HRR this season, here are some figures to get you rolling:

08-09 season noon rates, 251 days, average $0.8625
09-10 season noon rates to date, 69 days, average $0.9135

You can estimate a final average value for 09-10 by plugging in your estimate for the rest of the 09-10 season.

Rate = (0.9135*69 + $ESTIMATE*182)/251

For example if today's closing rate of $0.9492 stayed consistent the rest of the season that would yield a final 09-10 NHL season HRR exchange rate of $0.9394.


2. Rates from Bank of Canada:
http://www.bankofcanada.ca/en/rates/exchange-look.html
CBA prescribes that the average annual rate for an NHL fiscal year be used, July 1 - June 30.


3. On the difficulty of predicting Exchange Rate fluctuations:
