Name: Toronto Maple LeafsThe report doesn't really contain any earth shattering revelations. It touches on the league's need for better TV contracts, that team values have risen thanks to the fixed nature of players' salaries, and that revenue sharing needs to be improved. However, in it's feature on the Ultimate NHL Franchise it features this entry for GM:
Current Value: $332 mil
Current Value: $159 mil
General Manager: John MucklerHmmm. Maybe this report isn't as insightful as it purports to be.
The Ottawa Senators' GM has achieved the best on-ice results compared with his team's payroll. His wins-to-player cost ratio has averaged 146 (46% better than the typical team) over the past three years, the best in the NHL.
