    Is this the same group that a month or two ago insisted that MLSE properties were not for sale-with the rumour with Rogers?

    Like to see more info...

    1.3 billion for for 66 percent of the pension funds share............. still would not be controlling interest. What is the total worth? 2.5- 3 billion..... c'mon

    I thinks that's the other way round - selling 100% of their 66% share of MLSE.

    Call it $2B in market value for the whole burrito.

    With Rob Ford as the new Mayor in Toronto, Hulsizer wouldn't even get a free toilet out of him.

    I heard the sportsbar they built next to the ACC makes a million per month in profit. Maybe they'll get into the bar franchise business. They had record viewership for a game on Leafs TV for last Thursday's game, over600,000 viewers.

    I guess it's sell high time......

    If the whole enterprise is worth approx. $2 billion, how much are the Leafs themselves worth? $700-800 million?

    forbes says $505, so i'd guess $500-$600 million.

    but they're making ~80M a year profit, so you'd expect a higher value.

    The Habs apparently make around 60M$ a year in profits if you include Avenko, and they were rumoured to have been sold for around 500M$, so I can see how the Leafs would be worth closer to 600M$ or more.

    I couldnt agree more, but this (below).......

    so why divest themselves of it?. I know its been rumored (Rogers erc) for sometime but really, where else are they going to find that kind of a consistently staggering return?....

    the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan is the second largest of its kind in north america (incl. mexico). only the california teachers plan is bigger.
