    These things are listed in the fine print of the Levitt report

    It includes

    Benefits(disability and medical insurance, life insurance)
    Medical treatement and insurance
    Payroll taxes(the employers share of what is owned to the IRS or CCRA)
    Pension payments.
    etc etc etc

    I think it's pretty obvious that it's strippers.

    It could have kept Huselius, Lilja, and Tallinder out of trouble.

    I think it's pretty obvious that you never add anything to a discussion.

    $2.2MM per team seems a little low if the above constitute "benefits". I'm surprised lodging, per diem, moving expenses and other such stuff aren't included as well.

    Those things are also included. The one I have a REAL hard time swallowing as a business owner in this country is the payroll taxes. I have NEVER been able to essentially bill them back to my employees, it's called the cost of doing business.

    I am pretty sure it's the performance oriented bonuses. You know, 200 K if you make the all-star game, 500 K if you score 40 goals, etc

    That's why it's not counted as player salaries. It's included in players costs, like in costs of business related to workers...

    I have never seen items that relate to employer related cost for employees in the side of the balance sheet Mr Levitt and Gary Bettman put them on. The cost of employing a trainer to keep your team healthy is not a player cost either, only in the NHL
