    240 million seems a bit high

    It's way too high.


    The Sabres were sold for around 150 million just recently IIRC. And Phoenix was purchased by the NHL for a similar amount.


    Now, I hate the Sabres, but I will be an NHL player before the Hurricanes' are worth nearly 100 million more than the Sabres.

    20 investors at $2M a pop for 30% puts the valuation at under $140M.

    The $240 million figure was used to calculate ownership percentages, so it's most likely not a "book" value by any means.

    Karmanos recently told the same reporter that the team's value "starts with a 2", but of course he would say that in the middle of a pitch to new investors.

    Just as the Forbes numbers are almost meaningless, so are the estimates of the guy looking to sell shares.

    When did the Hurricanes move to Southern Ontario?
