In Topic: NHL Franchise Values (Per Forbes)

Neboors, not trying to be a dick, but not sure what made you think those valuations from that site were anything close to being factual. Just look at those numbers. The Devils were sold for $320 million last year, which according to this would make them as valuable as the Bruins and top 5 or 5 in the league?

 

Some of the numbers posted there are probably half of what the teams are worth if they were to be sold. I'd say most of the teams in the league would be sold for more than what they think the Blackhawks are worth.

 

This guy has the Leafs at just over $500 million. MLSE had 75% of their stake (the most important part is the Leafs) sold for $1.3 billion.

Point well taken. However, I think the Prudential Center revenue outside of the Devils was a huge factor in the acquisition as well as the final purchase price.

 

Just to underscore this point, here's this:

NEWARK — The Prudential Center in Newark has joined Madison Square Garden, the Staples Center in Los Angeles and the O2 Arena in London as being among the top 10 grossing arenas in the world.

Pittsburgh Penguins. I really don't think he's signing in Jersey. He would have to get entirely shut out of the free agent market and then agree to come back to Jersey, be forced to take a hefty pay cut and be cool with only getting 15 games or so. I don't see that happening.

Here are the top-three things the Devils should do (in order):

1. Find any team, preferably with a GM who has no background in advanced NHL stats, and trade Bryce Salvador - I don't care if it's for a 7th-round draft pick. Just take it.

2. Do whatever it takes to sign Paul Stastny or Ryan O'Reilly - whoever winds up ultimately walking out on the Avs. Obviously this is going to be difficult, but it's worth the effort.

3. Get Cory Schneider locked up long term.
