As it stands now? Things seem pretty good almost like they're doing the right thing and starting to field a consistent quality hockey product year after year that's improving. If they can do what they've done the last few years than I'm happy to hear an article like this. If they do what they've done before now like SMith and Sather it up THEEEN I'd whine and complain nonstop even at good news like this.

Same salary cap for all teams no matter what. Pre cap you're right complete and utter pathetic embarrasment

Second richest without a winning pedigree. Imagine if we were winning cups.

Yes it did. I guess all of those banks and companies that closed which were HQed in NY meant nothing. Where all of those people lost their jobs. I guess all of these people that I know who can't find jobs are just incompetent. I guess all of us who have jobs who haven't seen a penny raise in a couple years are just poor performers...

If anything, NY was a hotbed of the recession.

Um, I believe NYC has a higher unemployment rate than the rest of the country.

That's not true. However, NYC has experienced the recession just as bad as any other state out there.

I think I recently read the NYC unemployment rate is 9.2%, slightly below the national average.

But during the crux of the financial crises in 2008/2009, it was almost certainly higher

My mistake. That said, I'd hardly say the recession has failed to effect NYC.

Your ignorance is appalling . If you haven't lived in this area please don't contribute your ignorance claiming that NY did not face a recession. There are ordinary people outside of the rich Manhattan sector. Usually the mods are quick to give out infractions for the silliest things. However, all of a sudden it's ok to stir politics in a strictly hockey thread. Interesting.

If anything, this is bad news. It reinforces what this owner has done as he has a very different idea for what success is in professional sports. These rankings and his bank account will say more than any "Fire Sather" rally ever will.

All that shows is a forecasted percentage of change from 2009. You would have been better off just posting this as "proof":

Correction on the recession comments.

It was the greed of the investment banks and companies IN nyc which caused a GLOBAL recession.

Obviously, NYC and the tri-state area was hit by it, but not nearly as bad as other locations in the states or other countries.

How does growth and profits lead to higher prices? I'd imagine being in the red would cause cuts and higher prices.

And this BS about New York being recession proof? What world do you guys live in? New York has one of the highest concentration of rich financial folk in the world. All of their profits and earnings always pad and skew any report like that. And if people lose their job, with New York rent? You can bet they aren't going to be able to stay very long. 9% unemployment is still 9% unemployment. Given the city's population, you are probably looking at 750,000 unemployed people. I've heard people say this out here in California - mostly if you still have a job, the recession isn't affecting you, but that is a very short sited view on things. Go volunteer at your local food bank and get some intel from the foot soldiers.

I try to avoid concessions like the plague. I'll occasionally buy something if I have no choice (if I get into the city late) otherwise no way. I'm not spending $7 on a hot dog.

The real question in all of this is how the Leaf's still make so much money even though their team has sucked so bad for so long.

Considering the following quote from the article, I do not put much faith in what they are saying...

"The Leafs have enjoyed steady growth since Forbes began its valuations since 1998 when the team was said to be worth $119 million. Last year, the value was $470 million up from $480 million in 2008."

You know what's stupid, they would probably sell MORE concession items and make more profit if they lowered the prices and made them more reasonable... How many people just carelessly spend money on concessions at any price point vs. how many people abstain from concessions or significantly limit their purchases due to the ridiculous prices?

I think that originally said "up from $48 million". Looks like someone tried to correct it but still got it wrong. It should probably be just "up 48 million".
