Hey look! Fans cheering for hockey. I remember that.
Here are today's KHL highlights. SOme pretty notable games are missing. For example, we didn't do packs for Yakupov's team Neftekhimik, Malkin's team Magnitogorsk, Lupul's team Avtomobilist, etc, etc. There was a technical issue, but we still managed to make highlight packs for five of the games. To make it up to you, we will be doing packs for the important games we missed tomorrow, in edition to tomorrow's Dynamo Moscow vs Dinamo Riga game.

As you all know by now, the Toronto Maple Leafs are worth $1-billion according to Forbes Magazine, who released their annual National Hockey League team valuations earlier on Wednesday.
These numbers are good as ballpark figures, used by Graphic Comments this summer when looking through the "winners" and "losers" of the 2005 lockout, but the figures are just estimates. The NHL shouldn't expect to release financial data (why should they). However, the $1-billion is probably pretty close. Forbes evaluates the Toronto Raptors at $384M, and together with the Maple Leafs and the rest of MLSE were sold for $1.32-billion this summer for approximately 80% of the shares. The enterprise value was listed at $2-billion. Generally, things are worth what you can pay for them.

Forbes annual look at the business of hockey was released on Wednesday, and if their estimates are accurate Canadian NHL teams are far and away the healthiest group of franchises in the game.
