Maple Leafs Worth $1 Billion
 
Quote:

The five most valuable teams–the Maple Leafs ($1 billion), New York Rangers ($750 million), Montreal Canadiens ($575 million), Chicago Blackhawks ($350 million) and Boston Bruins ($348 million)–are worth $605 million, on average. The five least valuable–the Carolina Hurricanes ($162 million), New York Islanders ($155 million), Columbus Blue Jackets ($145 million), Phoenix Coyotes ($134 million) and St. Louis Blues ($130 million)–are worth just $145 million, on average.

There is also an incredible bifurcation of cash flow. Overall operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) almost doubled during the 2011-12 season, to $250 million. But the sport’s three most profitable teams–the Maple Leafs ($81.9 million), Rangers ($74 million), Canadians ($51.6 million)–accounted for 83% of the league’s income, while 13 of 30 teams lost money, before non-cash expenses and interest payments.

When Rogers and Bell bought the teachers share of MLSE they valued the Leafs at close to a billion. Most of the value jump was due to the sale, same with Montreal.

Agreed. Chances are if the Knicks & Lakers were to be sold today they'd be sold for probably 1-1.5 Billion. Hell if the Dodgers are worth 2 Billion the Lakers would get sold for at least 1.5Bil, especially after that massive TV deal they signed a year ago. Are,kt the Yankees worth 3Bil?

Yanks are worth $1.9 bil but they would probably be sold for $3 bil today

The Knicks if sold today would go for over 1 billion. It's all mostly based on past numbers and what they were last sold for. Same with the Lakers, you think they wouldn't be sold today for well north of 1 Billion? Of course they would.
