It's also not the 70's anymore. The difference between a big revenue generating team and a not-big revenue generating team is not whether or not you can get people out to the arena.

Yeah, you're right, selling merch in Vegas is going to be a nightmare.  :-X

I'm pretty sure merch sales go to the league which are then split evenly among teams. I'm more referring to regional TV money/ancillary revenue streams.

And I don't know what you think my larger point is outside of "I don't think the deadliest mass shooting will affect the NHL's salary cap too much" but, well, that's it.

Exactly. I don't think Vegas will have a ton of issue with ticket sales. I can definitely see them struggling with everything a team needs to be profitable - especially if they're relying on out of town visitors. Less local fans means less eyeballs watching the games on TV, which means less advertising revenue/less value in the local broadcast rights. Also, likely lower sales on the more valuable paraphernalia, etc. Visiting fans don't drop $200 on a jersey as often as locals do. They'll be fine on tickets and concessions. They could very easily struggle with everything else.

I think in-arena merchandise goes mostly to the team. Online and other merchandise is through the league, yeah.
