this team is a cash cow for the owners, massive market (wealthier) to fill the arena. however on a grand scale in terms of selling merchandise(whooring the league) i'd say the team is limited and small market. it takes quite the talent to sell an american on a canadian jersey and that 300 mil market is what horns up the league. This is the same reason why the nhl was so hesitant to grow the number of teams in canada, they were obessed with cracking the major market and making that nfl type merchandise sales
