How much (mod: money and the Wings)

did Ilitch make from the last 2 playoff runs? 8 playoff rounds and 13 SC finals games. What do you think folks?

I'm guessing coffee money compared to his real business.

They used to say it was about 2 mil per home game, but that's probably moved north with prices going up and whatnot. So 24 games at 2-3 mil apiece would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-60 million bucks.

The team made about $1.1 MM per game during the regular season (gate receipts). Tickets ramp up by each round, to something like 2-3x by the Cup final. Keep in mind though there are only 3-4 home dates. We can just say conservatively $2 MM per round.

However....... the NHL takes 40% from the Wings (using the regular season avg as the basis), so $5-6 MM goes to the league. (post-lockout)

I add 50% of the gate receipt avg to get a rough estimate of in-arena revenue (concessions, merchandise).

You can also look at Forbes estimates for team revenues, and compare the years they get further in the playoffs, to those where they do not.

2001-02 $114 MM
2002-03 $89
2003-04 $97
2005/06 $89
2006/07 $109
2007/08 $110
