I thought I read somewhere that Roy gets 2 million per year. I didn't realize quenville made that much.

 

Well, it's assumed he does.  See thought #28 here: http://www.sportsnet...tud-defencemen/

I think it would be the highest paid coaching contract in the league if I'm not mistaken. He's was already pretty close to the top (and was when he signed) at $2m

 

Officially, Quennville is the highest paid coach in the league at $2.9m a year.  Roy's overall compensation is probably more than that given his additional VP role.

I thought Sakic is the VP there and Roy is acting as a player / GM type of guy ?

 

But yeah I agree and I think Babcock has done everything to earn that title and/or trust.

 

Roy's titles are Head Coach & VP of Hockey Operations

And the NHL has relatively reasonable prices. The AHL and WHL charge $300+ for a full season.

 

I would like to see the NHL negotiate the next TV contract to give them the ability to offer a no-blackout service to fans.

 

If the league is willing to take less money from NBC, Rogers, regional networks, etc. they could probably make that happen.  No network is going to pay full price though if they don't have exclusive rights.

The NHL controls broadcast rights, not the teams.  I'm sure the Yotes and Preds owners don't want the Leafs and Wings making money they can't dip their paws into, or worse, stream the games free on the Wings site so no one makes any cash.

 

Nor would the Ilitch family want to assume the cost of staging broadcasts or other risks in forming their own Red Wings network I would think, even if splitting the risks with a rights partner.  There is definitely strength in numbers in this case.  Don't forget, we're just a decade removed from things being bleak enough that the league gave NBC broadcast rights for no money upfront, only getting a share of ad revenue after NBC covered its production/distribution costs.  I won't even get into details on how recent trends in cord cutting could spell trouble for future revenue for sports leagues.  Ultimately what I'm saying is that don't think the Wings, if they even had the ability to split off on their own in regards to broadcast rights, that it would be a slam dunk success.
