Canadian NHL Revenues

From CBC:

[Gary] Bettman told interviewer Ron McLean before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final in Pittsburgh that interest in Canada is helping drive revenue but that it was partly a reflection of market forces and not cause for concern.

“It’s a little disproportionate and I think that may be a good thing, because if you go back seven or eight years ago when people were saying we’d only have one club left from Canada, the revenues were disproportionate the other way,” said Bettman.

“What it means is we’ve done a very good job of getting the Canadian clubs healthy. Frankly revenues are growing across the board — it isn’t just the Canadian dollar and it isn’t just the Canadian clubs and any suggestion to the contrary is somebody trying to get a headline.”

Note: McLean’s questions were motivated by this article from Rick Westhead in last Thursday’s Toronto Star. There’s also an audio online at FAN 590 featuring an interview with Westhead about his report.
