Anyone know when the tv contracts are up? Could generate a ton of money from media rights, on ice ad revenue, and tv commercials. Obviously not enough to cover the costs of having fans in attendance, but a team like the Sens that averaged just north of 12,000 fans a game could help bridge the gap. They could technically commercialize the crap out of the product. The NHL could also sell premium content like off-ice content, behind the scenes content, and even make deals with local vendors to sell concessions somehow and/or team up for promotions (ie: 67s pizza at Pizza Pizza).
67s pizza is at Gabriel's
Both are trash though.
