I'll take this opportunity, since it seems appropriate enough to post on this thread to address something I've been wondering about for awhile. What's the deal with the leafs being worth a billion dollars and us only being a little under six hundred million.

Is it just better marketing strategies by the leafs? ticket prices...are there really more leafs fans? What's the deal?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Great question. I don't understand how come they are worth almost twice as much as the Habs.

i was just looking on their website and there tickets do seem to be alot more expensive so obviously that's the big factor. I have to believe that montreal would still sell out if we had them at the same price...but then again you would think molson would have them at the same price in that case.

google population of greater montreal area
google population of greater toronto area


toronto is global. top 3 in the world in foreign investments for all cities (or some ridiculous stat like that).

Montreal is a big village. Very local economy. People have less money.

How this effects revenues? you can figure it out.

Don't worry

As long as the Subban saga continues they won't pass us. Can they keep up with a 1000+ posts thread per day ? I don't think so.

American Habs fan reporting in: Long time lurker, first time poster. I figure this is a good place to make my first post.

So we probably do indeed have a bigger fanbase...just not as much money to throw into molsons pockets...but i guess no matter what we are the most passionate.

Plus the Leafs get better TV revenue than the Habs. They're on every Saturday for HNIC, plus on Sportsnet a lot and they have their own channel with Leafs TV.

I can see why you've been given such a prestigious position.

If posts could only translate into wins on ice! Who cares how much yakkety-yak comes from fans who weren't alive when the Leafs last won a championship?

91 posts on this board is a lot? I've seen more than that over what type of mouth guard Peter Popovic would wear in practice.

To be fair they have threads about the Raptors and the Blue Jays.

Also, francophones tend to write less as we don't have nearly as much vocabulary.

Not that I'm a Habs fan.
