Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
The Phoenix Coyotes were penalized 25 percent of their revenue-sharing money last season, multiple sources told ESPN.com.
That money, due to be $15 million but now less than that, is part of the NHL’s revenue-sharing formula, where big-market clubs share resources with the smaller-market teams.
The formula, however, includes triggers that these clubs must hit in order to show improvement in a number of areas; since the Coyotes failed to hit revenue and attendance standards last season, they were penalized, according to sources.
