Thanks Canada

from the Toronto Star,

Canadian fans truly are the backbone of the NHL.
The six Canadian teams, representing 20 per cent of the 30-team league, account for 33.3 per cent of all NHL revenues.
That means Canadian team fans cough up an estimated $733 million (all figures U.S.) of the league’s $2.2 billion revenue.


added 8:34am, from the National Post via Canada.com,

The National Hockey League has always played fast and loose with the fans and media over the word “attendance.” And while under the league’s revenue- based salary-cap system, it does not behoove the NHL to spin gate receipts, the latest numbers do not paint a positive picture.
