from Jamie McGee of the Nashville Business Journal,
The Nashville Predators kept their star defenseman Shea Weber Tuesday by matching one of the NHL’s most lucrative offers. As Nashville rallies around the team’s decision to hold on to its captain, consider these other figures for context:
$110 million: Salary Weber will make over 14 years. Also the amount of cash held by President Obama’s re-election campaign as of mid-June.
$51.04: Average ticket price to a 2011-12 Nashville Predators game, according to Team Marketing Report.
2,155,172: Number of tickets you could buy at that price for $110 million.
126: Number of times those tickets would fill each of Bridgestone Arena’s 17,113 seats.
