Canucks made $146 million last season
Canucks score big on revenue
Citing a "secret National Hockey League report," the Star states the Canucks' ticket revenue per game during the 2010-11 season was $1.7 mil-lion, a 21-per-cent increase from the previous season, making it the most improved Canadian hockey team in the league in that area of the business.
The report did not indicate whether the Canucks' ticket revenue was based solely on the regular season, in which the team captured the Presidents' Trophy as the NHL's top team with a 54-19-9 record, or whether it was a combination of exhibition, regular season and the Stanley Cup playoffs.
According to Forbes.com, the online website for Forbes Magazine, the Canucks made $146 million last season, thanks mostly to last spring's playoff run.
Last night against the Sharks was consecutive sellout #381.
Simple supply & demand, right?
Aquilini is smiling all the way to the BANK. Too bad he doesn't adjust the ticket prices so real fans can afford more games eh?
Just remember in the playoffs, you can jack up the ticket prices and the players play for free, so that Spring run was worth quite a bit to the Aquaman.
Licence to print money. Makes it real easy to keep the talent depth up. Stashing guys on IR and on the farm, front loading contracts, etc. We're lucky.
