NHL constitution, bylaws

From the Phoenix Court Filings:
1. NHL Constitution, By-laws

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.

National Television contracts

A. Canadian TV Contracts: (all figures US$)

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

2) TSN: $33.5-50 MM/yr [6 yr term, 2009]
** TSN: $100MM/yr for rights fee and
http://www.bizofhockey.com/?option=c...d=141&Itemid=1
Quote:
The agreement commences with the 2008-09 season and runs through 2013-14. Reportedly, the deal is worth approx. $100 million, with TSN's rights fees possibly half that.
...

Under terms of the deal, TSN secures exclusive Canadian specialty television rights for national English-language broadcast and digital coverage of NHL games. Details of the agreement are as follows:
  • TSN will televise 70 regular-season games annually; for the first time, all games will feature at least one Canadian team
  • TSN will televise the first three rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with the possibility of featuring a Canadian team in the Conference Quarter-Finals; marks the first time TSN would have coverage of a Canadian team in the post-season
  • Vast majority of games will be in High Definition on TSN HD
  • Suite of digital rights for TSN telecasts includes broadband, wireless and video-on-demand
  • Continued exclusivity of Wednesday Night Hockey, in which there are no other national or local telecasts
  • Continued exclusive Canadian coverage of the NHL Entry Draft and NHL Draft Lottery Special
  • Under the current television deal set to expire at the end of the season TSN only showed playoff games in the U.S.
  • Headlining TSN’s increased Canadian team coverage is the Toronto Maple Leafs with 17 appearances annually, followed by Montreal with 15, and 10 appearances each for Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa.
Links for 1 & 2:

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, Réseau 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.
B. United States TV Contracts:

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

http://www.kuklaskorner.com/index.ph...n_next_season/
Quote:
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.

**** NBC/Versus: $200MM/yr for ten years (expires June 2021).

C. International:


http://www.marketwatch.com/story/nhl...eal-2011-10-20

Signed in 2011:

Quote:
The NHL’s five-year pact with broadcaster Modern Times Group is valued at more than $50 million and includes Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. The agreement marks a big step in the league’s efforts to increase its international exposure, particularly in Europe.

The deal is the largest of several the NHL has struck in recent weeks, as it negotiates its international rights. The league has also sealed deals in France, the U.K., Spain and the Czech-Slovak market. The league also cut deals in Africa and the Middle East.

Historic television (local) revenue

1. Toronto Maple Leafs

2007-08 Season: US $41 MM

http://network.nationalpost.com/np/b...n-phoenix.aspx
Quote:
4 p.m. Ever wondered how much the Leafs earn in television revenues? Here is the number from 2007-08, according to NHL lawyer Goldfein: US$41-million.
2. Detroit Red Wings - 30 MM/yr x 10 yrs FSN-Detroit
http://www.forbes.com/2009/12/17/nhl...s_slide_7.html

3. Montreal Canadiens
RDS - $20 MM


4. Tampa Bay Lightning - $9 MM
CBJ- $2 MM

(per MacLean interview on FAN590)

5. NY Islanders - $14.8/17.5 - 36 MM (2000-01 - 2030-31)
http://www.nytimes.com/1999/06/11/sp...es-misery.html
Quote:
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.
6. New Jersey Devils

These articles are all consistent with each other and back up the long held notion amongst Devils fans that the team gets at least $25m annually (I wanted to find some credible sources confirming this). I'm guessing the 2024 end date slid to 2025 because of the lockout already underway the year it was signed. Hope this is helpful.

Kings, Fox Sports reach agreement on $250-million TV deal
June 03, 2012|By Bill Shaikin

The new deal keeps the Kings on Fox Sports West through 2024 and guarantees the team about $250 million, according to a person familiar with the agreement who was not authorized to discuss the terms.

The contract ranks among the most lucrative local cable deals for any NHL team.
...
The Kings' television windfall has less to do with their Stanley Cup run than with the fractured cable sports landscape in Southern California.

With Time Warner Cable swiping the Lakers from Fox and launching two sports channels, the Kings now have joined the Angels in leveraging the threat of jumping to TWC into a fat new deal to stay with Fox.

The Dodgers become television free agents this fall, but Fox has retained the Angels and Kings well into the next decade, with the Clippers already signed deep into this decade.
...
Fox agreed to tear up the Kings' current contract, which extended through 2015 and included annual payments that topped out at about $12 million.

The new deal averages about $21 million per season. The most lucrative local cable deals pay NHL teams more than $25 million per season and the least lucrative less than $10 million, Forbes reported in December 2010.

The Angels' new deal includes an ownership stake in Fox Sports West; the Kings' deal does not. The average annual value of the Angels' new contract is about six times that of the Kings' deal. Baseball teams command much larger payments because they play more games and generally attract larger audiences for each one.
(To be continued)

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.

Is this true? And if so, what impact do you think this has on teams willing to sign players to contracts who were injured in terms of weighing paid salary versus insurance cost increases and whatnot.
C & P from the Will Savard get paid if he retires? thread:

The result is that

A) Savard gets his money

B) Bruins are provided cap relief (putting him on LTIR allows them to go over the cap by an amount equal to his cap hit)

C) Bruins would have insurance on the contract of some form, so they would have some financial relief.

I'm sure KDB will chime in shortly with the exact scenario
Yup.

The Bruins are responsible for paying the remainder of Savard's salary - they may have insurance to cover all or part of it.

Savard will not retire - ie file to be placed on the "Voluntarily retired List" - if he did, he would forego his remaining $$$.

Instead he will simply be placed on LTIR for the remainder of his SPC (a la Rathje).

Virtually all insurance is under a group policy through the League. Not every contract is insured.

Teams typically only insure 5-7 SPCs through the League's group insurance plan. Coverage kicks in after 30 games. Coverage only covers 7 years max.

Additional insurance through secondary markets is prohibitively expensive.

C&P from another long term contract thread.

Yup - insurance through the league covers at most 7 years. Private insurance is prohibitively expensive.

Quote:
NHL Insurance Plan Covers Player Contracts For Seven Years

The NHL's insurance plan insures player contracts for seven years, and "beyond that, if the player gets hurt, the team is on the hook for the full amount of his contract," according to Luke DeCock of the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER. As part of the plan, which the NHL purchases through New York-based insurance broker BWD Group, NHL teams are "required to insure a handful of players through a 'temporary total disability' program administered by the league." Each team "pays a premium based on the salaries of its five highest-paid players, but is free to allocate that coverage how it wishes." NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said that "typically, a team will extend coverage to as many as seven players."
...
DeCock noted individual teams "are free to pursue additional coverage, but the heavy premiums make it a losing proposition." Rutherford said that "seeking private insurance to cover a longer deal is prohibitively expensive."
Quote:

Also it does not cover all the players on the roster. This was written during Eric Staal's contract negotiations and focuses on contract length and insurance issues:

Quote:
The league purchases its disability insurance through the BWD Group, a Long Island, N.Y., insurance broker that also obtains coverage for the NBA, WNBA and Major League Baseball. (One underwriter, the Chubb Corporation, touted its relationship with the NHL in its 2001 annual report.)

Each team pays a premium based on the salaries of its five highest-paid players, but is free to allocate that coverage how it wishes. Typically, a team will extend coverage to as many as seven players, Daly said. Coverage kicks in when a player misses at least 30 games.

Beyond that, individual teams are free to pursue additional coverage, but the heavy premiums make it a losing proposition. To insure a player under the league program, it costs about 5 percent of his salary. To insure additional players, it would cost substantially more.

“Usually it works out that we have five players under the league program,” Rutherford said. “When you get to a certain dollar amount, the premiums keep skyrocketing. I wish it was easier to get each [player] insured, but we can’t do that. …

“If you wanted, you could insure all the contracts, but it would be very expensive.”

US Work Visas for hockey

http://www.usimmigrationlaw.net/visas-athletes.htm

Thumbnails of common (work) visas:
  • O-1 visas are for "extraordinary" athletes (example given: Wayne Gretzky)
  • P-1 visas are for those who don't meet criteria for O-1. "Athletes under contract with the NHL, NBA, MLB, MLS and NFL need only establish that they have a major league contract to qualify for a P-1 visa."
  • H-2B visas are temporary (one year/season duration), nominally for minor league teams. Teams "must obtain a labor certification from the Department of Labor."
  • B-2 visas would be for a traveling group of amateur athlete/group coming to US for competition (for which they receive no compensation except incidental/travel expenses)
(H-1B is the visa type most often in the news as there is a quota that is renewed as the calendar year begins -- this is often for workers hired to come in and do tech jobs, etc. E.g., http://www.businessweek.com/articles...s-go-to-plan-b)

Is 100% of your income taxed in BC? or is 100% of your income taxed in New York / Ontario because that's where the union is based / certified? Or are you taxed proportional to where you play your games?

The answer to this would help determine what employment laws apply to what employees. If everything is taxed in BC, then BC's labour laws would certainly apply. If everything is taxed in Ontario/NY, then those labour laws would apply. However, if players are taxed proportionate to where they do their work, then the province of Alberta could certainly declare it illegal to lock out any players who would've played in Alberta this year.
Players pay Federal, State/Provincial, and local income takes (if any) on their entire earnings based on the city they play in.

In addition, they have to pay non-resident income taxes ("Jock taxes") on income earned during away games - based on a patchwork of state and provincial tax laws - however, in general, they get to take tax deductions on their federal taxes for state/local taxes paid and tax credits on state taxes for state/local taxes paid to other jurisdictions.

Time do drag this out again:

Yup.

The CA Franchise Tax Board taxes visiting players (at a top rate of 9.3%) based on 1/82 of their NHL salary for every game played in San Jose, LA, or Anaheim.

Most other states (with state income taxes) do the same.

I would be very surprised if Provincial tax authorities didn't do the same.

http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...an-cometh.html

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.

One player whose file I was working on recently and is currently with the St. Louis Blues had to file all the following returns in 2006: United States and Canadian Federal, States of Arizona, North Carolina, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, California, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania and the City of St. Louis.

History of escrow pay back/bonus/players share

http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/90...ording-sources

Quote:
2005-06: The net result was that each player earned 104.64 percent of his 2005-06 contract (includes the shortfall and interest). Players' share was 54 percent of HRR.

2006-07: The net result was that each player earned 97.51 percent of his 2006-07 contract. Players' share was 55.6 percent of HRR.

2007-08: The net result was that each player earned 100.66 percent of his 2007-08 contract. Players' share was 56.7 percent of HRR.

2008-09: The net result was that each player earned 87.12 percent of his 2008-09 contract. Players' share was 56.73 percent of HRR.

2009-10: The net result was that each player earned 90.59 percent of his 2009-10 contract. Players' share was 57 percent of HRR.

2010-11: The net result was that each player earned 97.7 percent of his 2010-11 contract. Players' share was 57 percent of HRR.

2011-12: The net result was that each player earned 99.48 percent of his 2011-12 contract. They got back just under 8 percent of the 8.5 percent they paid in escrow during the year. Players' share was 57 percent of HRR.

2006-2007: -2.76% (became -2.49% with interest)
2007-2008: +0.48% (became +0.66% with interest)

They're probably relatively close to the same for later years with interest rates at like 0.10%.

Price of Beer - from There was a link to arena beer prices in NHL cities in the ".. 95% less you know who .." thread..... btw, good for them being in the top 10.... The linked website gave prices for amounts all over the board which is not the way to compare prices.

I calculated to and sorted by the price (US) per ounce and by revenue if every person at a sell out drank one beer on average. Obviously not every game is a sellout and then there's the cost of beer to whomever (the team?) if they have sole rights to concessions (beer sales)....

Apparently a lot of teams could better their bottom lines by upping their beer prices....
