Everyone should peruse the Forbes list (HabFab provided the link earlier: http://www.forbes.com/nhl-valuations/list). If you sort by operating income, the top six teams made a cumulative $228M in 2010/2011, and the remaining 24 teams lost a cumulative $101.5M. The current CBA, while worlds better than the pre-lockout agreement, still does not make business sense for the sport as a whole. The league's opening offer may seem extreme at first glance, but my gut says it's not that far off from where the final compromise needs to be for the long-term health of the NHL.
