Unfortunately, it does.

The Leafs have been irrelevant for the last 10 years when it comes to the on ice product. Wether you accept it or not, it's a fact.


Edit: or you could say the Jackets made the playoffs twice in the last 10 years, something the Leafs haven't done. But yeah, I'm the idiot here.

- Pecafan Fan

they took Boston to 7th game OT Round 1 last year therefore they are relevant again.

i think it's the same one, didn't see where they talked about sale vs re-sale, but you could be right.........still, i doubt the actual rankings change that much. i'm pretty confident that ottawa is right in the middle of the pack in terms of ticket price. but you are right, they're probably the lowest among canadian teams.

Of the league? Yes. you have to be careful in reading too much in to that though, when a huge portion of expenses are in US$. Even with a 10% dollar fluctuation the wrong way, it can hit profits pretty hard, and being in the middle of the league for that isn't as rosy as it may sound.

I doubt they're losing money. But I also think given the ticket prices, attendance, dollar, etc, they're not making too much either.

Or, no multiple-cup-winning original 6 team with the longest cup drought in professional hockey will ever be irrelevant. how about that?

oh, i'm not claiming that they're making money hand over fist............i'm just saying that melnyk's claims that the team has lost something like 250 million since he bought them is complete bullpoop.

maybe HE personally lost that much, but it had nothing to do with the team.

Melnyk is like the guy who fills his car up with office supplies and then complains that there are never any yellow stickies around when he needs one.

Haha, top shelf was trying to say that the new regional tv deal would allow the Sens to be the highest spending team in the league.



Ticket prices would be a pretty good indication of fan base size(by way of demand for tickets), so I'd say the smallest fan base in Canada is going to have a difficult time signing a broadcast deal bigger than a team like the leafs, who actually have their own station.....

- prock
The leafs,ottawa probably generates 100 mil total.anyhow just sick of us ontario teams getting the shaft through incompetiance from ownership

If it were the Sens they'd be raising a banner. Hell, even if there were another team in Ottawa that managed it, they'd raise a banner.
