    Seeing this thread made me wonder:

    It would be interesting to see the numbers as far Toronto (missed playoffs last six years), vs teams that make the playoffs, in particular, how many scenarios (teams) are there where Toronto makes more money per reg season game than a team that is in the playoffs (with playoff pricing). My understanding is the Leafs make approx 2 million per game income in regular season (maybe I'm off "only" 1 million)? How many teams make less than that per PLAYOFF game.

    I als may be misremembering, but didn't one of the spokespeople for OTPP say that they have in fact ADJUSTED to the idea of not being in the playoffs financially? (And what I mean is, that the spokesperson has a very "Laisse-fair" type tone, almost as it to say "it hurts a bit, but we're managing without playoffs)

    How many other teams in the NHL could say that? Seriously? MTL? NY? I'm trying to keep it in perspective of the Playoffs vs Non Playoff idea of the thread.
