Canucks are only non original six team in the top 6 franchises. That's impressive.

VAN is also the only one of the top six who have never had a former-player with very strong allegiances to their team, appointed to the DPS. And we're not going to count Matthieu Schneider, who wasn't in VAN for long & left acrimoniously,.. and he deals with equipment issues, anyway.

Yah - more regional representation on a very powerful committee like the DPS would be nice, to say the very least.

Also only one without a cup either. Not that we didn't win one in 2011, because in my heart we did. But I mean actually having their name engraved on it.

This is largely in part due to this being Vancouver's only major team (no NFL, NBA, MLB) and how rich the people here are that can dish out top $ for seats.

Pretty odd that a team like Toronto who hasn't won the Cup since before the moon landing and recently reported by a major sporting publication as one of the losingest franchise in N.American pro sports can have the dollar value of that magnitude. Any Toronto fan would take New Jersey for example at number 21 for Stanley Cups over franchise value.

As for the Habs who have not appeared in a Stanley Cup ( 1993 ) when the Internet entered our lives continues to live off the past from the last century would surely love Boston's success in that time.

The best over all value for franchise worth and on ice success the Detroit Red Wings in my books!
