50-70% more than what? Current rate?

Napkin math says that'd mean it's a $12M gate difference between the two series? (200k * 30 * 2, since owners keep half)

But what if next year's cup ratings are different than this one's? Or any year until expiration in 2021?

Right, but your words were "we know who HRR is cheering for", so tell me about that.

Okay, so how much higher will next year's salary cap be if it's 7 games of NYR-CHI vs 7 games of ANA-TBL?

You're mistaking me for somebody who cares what money NBC makes that it doesn't share with the NHL.

But anyways, I just don't see any meaningful HRR boost that your first tweet claimed.

I guess, but not sure they should worry that much about it, given that it's always going to be conditional on who's in it.

Which should raise the salary cap by approximately $0 over the life of this TV contract.

So we'd probably need to align cup finalists for the next few years, I guess, to really impact it.

Does NBC pay a different amount to the league based on ratings?

At this point, the commissioner should just step in and immediately start a cup finals of Ducks & Hawks vs Rangers & Bolts.

Made this when and I simultaneously retired from blogging, but let's pretend I made it about Pete DeBoer.

Hot take: Stats aren't the problem, the eye test isn't the problem, the elitists throwing shade at everyone else are what ruins things.
