Profile

The Canucks had a drop in revenue during 2011-12 as the team played 8 fewer playoff games at Rogers arena than they hosted in 2011 when they went to the Stanley Cup finals. But the team remains one of the most financially sound NHL franchises. A passionate fan base and sky-high tickets allows the Canucks to generate $70 million annually in gate receipts--fourth highest in the NHL.

Prior to the lockout,

the Canucks, who sold out every game last season, were reporting a 97% renewal rate for season tickets, the same number the team had for the 2010-11 season.

I find the gate receipts v the players salary to be rather interesting.

While I hate how pricey our tickets are, I don't blame them. If I was a business owner is sell them for what the market can afford. People are willing to pay this amount so you gotta keep it there.

70% purchase price ROI over the last 7 years.
If the purchase was 75% financed, he'll have made 280% ROI over the last 7 years, nice :)

Aquilini fought pretty hard to not disclose the financials of the Canucks during his divorce proceedings. Many thought that it was because (a) no one likes to disclose confidential corporate documents unless they have to and (B) Aquilini wants to keep the value of the Canucks "undervalued", as to avoid giving up more assets to his ex-wife and to avoid paying more taxes. So... yeah. this valuation based on what the team has released shouldn't be too accurate.

Considering how long the season ticket wait list is, it's a wonder why they don't raise prices further.

Interesting how Chicago and Boston are both ahead of us.

Really it shouldn't be too surprising, they're both original Six so their markets and brands are very valuable. Consider also that in metropolitan population, Boston is twice as big as Vancouver and Chicago four times as big, so owning the respective markets are pretty key for those two. When you look at the pretty minor difference, it's clear that the Canucks make up for most of those advantages with the more reliable and concentrated interest in the Vancouver fanbase.

What I think is pretty interesting is that the original 6 are ranked 1-6, and the Canucks at 7 are the highest valued non-original 6 team. It's also clear from the numbers that among the top teams, you could break them up into different echelons: the Leafs, Rangers and Habs are all worth 1/2 billion+, then 4-8 are quite tightly bunched (#8=Philly), and then there's a big dropoff to the next tier of markets, like Pittsburgh, LA, Washington and Calgary.

With Bettman in charge of the NHL... we have little hope.


Gary Bettman can provide neither the vision nor leadership to fix the NHL


BY ED WILLES, THE PROVINCE


Gary Bettman is everything Canadian hockey fans revile.

He is not a hockey guy but he is the worst kind of empty suit: a corporate lawyer from New York. In two decades on the job, he has yet to demonstrate a passion or love for this game which is so deeply embedded in our national psyche. And, when you come right down to it, there’s something inherently unlikable about the little man.

Oh, yes. One other thing. Under Bettman’s watch, the NHL is currently enduring its third major work stoppage of the last 18 years.

Short of putting a Darth Vader helmet on him, you couldn’t cast a better villain for this piece. But, while it’s kind of fun to make Bettman the target of all our derision and scorn — OK, it’s a lot of fun — it misses the point.

The issue, and prepare to be pummelled with the obvious here, concerns the divide that exists between the NHL’s wealthiest teams and its poorest.

I think a lot of that has to do with Brian Burke. If we still had him, I think the Canucks would be worth twice as much as they are now. Maybe when his contract is done with the Leafs, we can get him back.

It's got nothing to do with Burke. They're an original 6 team with a timeless brand, they've gotten their fans to swallow an outrageous ticket price point, they're in the country's largest media market and have a dedicated TV channel (and are owned by media companies, meaning a lot of exclusive content arrangements, etc). They have territorial priority over the world's largest concentration of hockey fans. And they've been able to maintain fan interest, passion, attendance and TV viewership across a generation of mediocrity, meaning that from a business angle, the customer base is predictable and reliable. Brian Burke has no bearing on any of that.

The Leafs have been screwed up for decades, nothing new there. What I did see was Canuck's ownership prematurely end Burke's reign by letting him go. So what happened? He went to Anaheim and won them a Cup instead. Gillis has done a decent job making us a contender, but we need Burke back to bring us at least one if not many Cups.

This again? He left Vancouver pretty much with NOTHING in terms of prospects. Something that two GM's have tried to fix.
He went to Anaheim a team with lots of picks and prospects. About the only thing he did is take advantage of the situation with Pronger. (A deal that had Edmonton pretty much over a barrel.) He signed Niedermayer, I give him that. But the team was almost built prior to him getting there. If you notice they won one cup, and the team went downhill with trade after trade and now Anaheim, much like Vancouver does not have much in the terms of prospects, and now needs to rebuild.

So tell me again, what's he done in Toronto and Vancouver? He never got past the 2nd round in Vancouver. He hasn't even made the playoffs in Toronto after 4 years. In fact in Toronto he made the stupidest trade possibly top 5 in history, by getting Phil Kessel.
Seguin in his second season got only 15 points less than Kessel, and they still have Dougie Hamilton waiting in the wings.
Dougie Hamilton by the way has 39 points in 30 games for Niagara in the OHL so far this year. AND HE'S A D-MAN!
So outside of Justin Schultz he's one of the best D-man prospects out there.

I never want Burke near our club again. And you can argue Toronto makes oodles of money, despite how bad the team is on the ice, or whatever bonehead moves Burke makes. I just hope he has one further bonehead move in trading for Luongo we get a 1st round pick back. ;)

Exactly,so let's make the players and fans pay for what is a league problem for placing teams in non-traditional hockey markets for Bettman's NBA tv deal dream.

Get rid of Bettman and these teams that lay hostage to NHL hockey.

You made the case for bringing Burke back. Gillis took up where Burke left off, made the team better, now it's time to bring him back to finish the job, Burke came into Anaheim, put the finishing touches on them, and BINGO, they win the cup! That's exactly what the Canucks need, someone who can put the finish on so we can get our cup!
