Well, it is actually 3.5 billion which works out to roughly 117 million per franchise. But, if I heard correctly on television the owners of the more valuable franchises will get more money. Seeing as the Ducks just went for 75 million 3.5 billion for the whole league sounds about right. One has to consider that of the four major sports league the NHL has the lowest valued franchises. Hockey teams are worth nowhere near what football, basketball, and most baseball franchises are.
