How much money does the team Toronto maple leafs make?

That number this year (2010) is currently around 500 million. But it might go up and down each year. However, every single year the Maple Leafs are the highest revenue making team and the second and third are the Montreal Canadiens, and the New York Rangers. Last year the Leafs made 53% of the total NHL Revenue! ----------- The Maple Leafs did not make $500 million or 53% of the total NHL revenue. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, the owners of the Leafs, made $500 million. There is a big difference as MLSE also owns the Raptors, Toronto FC, Air Canada Centre, Marlies, a popular sports bar, and 2 condominium buildings. NHL teams do not release financial numbers however we do know by admissions in the Phoenix Coyotes bankruptcy hearing that the Leafs earn the most revenue in the NHL.
