Via: Business First of Buffalo

'The NHL reported this week online sales for Sabres-related products via the nhl.com store are up 900 percent from April 2005 through April 2006. A league official estimates that retail sales for Sabres' wares may be approaching the $75 million to $80 million range. Revenues generated from those sales are accrued to the league's bottom line and shared equally among the 30 franchises.'
