Worth of Canadian NHL Teams for 2009/2010
Friday, November 27, 2009
Forbes has released their annual report on the worth of NHL franchises for 2009.  As we reported last year in our worth of NHL teams post, the Toronto Maple Leafs were in the top spot with an estimated worth of $448 million.  Phoenix was last of all 30 teams in the NHL with a worth of $142 million.

We didn't expect a lot of change this year.  Let's begin by examining the worth of the six Canadian NHL franchises.


Net Worth of Canadian NHL Franchises for 2009
  1. Toronto Maple Leafs - the top appraised team in the entire league with a net worth of $470 million, the Leafs are again the top of the list.  Too bad that this is the only list that they will top as the Leafs are off to a rough start this season as they are again near the bottom of the NHL standings after the first two months of the season.  It's not wonder that the Leafs brass do not want another Jim Basillie to put another NHL franchise in the Southern Ontario market, that might take away from the Leafs profit.  The Leafs have a little too much pull when it comes to the business affairs of the league.  As far as we're concerned, League chairman Gary Bettman is a joke. http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/31/hockey-values-09_Toronto-Maple-Leafs_312012.html

  2. Montreal Canadiens - Ah the storied franchise that is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary.  Ranked third overall, les Habitants have a net worth of $339 million as of 2009.  With a pending sale to the Molson family, the Canadians have generated revenue of $130 million. 



    According to reports from Forbes, this past July, George Gillett agreed to sell his 80% stake in the Canadiens, the Bell Centre and a concert-production business for about $500 million.






  3. Vancouver Canucks - with a net worth of $239 million, the Canucks are number nine overall on the NHL worth list.  Revenues for the Canucks have been increasing steady for the past ten years.  With the Winter Olympics set for Vancouver in February 2010, the Canucks will be in between home games for a period of two weeks. 



    The Canucks announced plans for a new upper club with season tickets being priced at around the $12,000 mark.  Sheesh, it's no wonder the team is in the top ten in the league in terms of net worth.  http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/31/hockey-values-09_Vancouver-Canucks_315423.html



  4. Calgary Flames - With an estimated worth of $200 million, the Flames dropped slightly from last year.  The team was purchased for $16 million in 1980 after moving from Atlanta to Calgary.



    It is interesting to know that the Flames operate in the NHL's second smallest market, but are in the top half of the league when it comes to revenues.  http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/31/hockey-values-09_Calgary-Flames_311479.html


  5. Ottawa Senators - Coming in at the #17 position overall just after the Calgary Flames are the Ottawa Senators.  The Sens have an estimated net worth of $197 million based on revenues of $90 million. 


    The Ottawa Senators are owned by Eugene Melnyk, who bought them in 2003 for $92 mil. http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/31/hockey-values-09_Ottawa-Senators_318444.html




  6. Edmonton Oilers - ah my favorite hockey team, the Edmonton Oilers.  The mighty Oil have not been so mighty as of late as they have missed the playoffs for three straight years and are in danger of missing them again this year.  The fact is, the Oilers have failed to qualify for the post season since trading away their heart and soul Ryan Smyth back at the trade deadline on February 27, 2007, when last minute negotiations with Smyth's agent Don Meehan failed. After twelve years with the Oilers, Ryan Smyth was traded to the New York Islanders, in exchange for Robert Nilsson, Ryan O'Marra and the Islanders' first round pick in the 2007 entry draft.  The Oilers have never been the same. 

    With a net worth of about $166 million, the Oilers are 24th overall dropping two spots from last year.  The Oilers are one of the few small-market, NHL teams that does not operate its building.  http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/31/hockey-values-09_Edmonton-Oilers_314229.html
