Analyzing The Forbes List

By now you've probably seen the Forbes list of most valuable franchises. Christy at Behind the Jersey breaks down the Wing-specific segments for us.
A few interesting tidbits from the Detroit section… 1) The average Red Wings game ticket is $51, which is $6 more than the New York Rangers’ average ticket but $19 less on average than the Toronto Maple Leafs’ tickets. The Dallas Stars worth $10 million less than the Wings has the average ticket price at $60. And here I am complaining about ticket prices at the Joe. 2) I thought that it was interesting that the Detroit revenue has fallen from the 2003-2004 season, which the Wings made $97 million, to the $89 million revenue from last season. In 2001-2002, the Wings not only won the Cup but made $114 million in revenue and were valued at $268 million.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
