The Detroit Red Wings have been the big sellers in the NHL, but what’s the biggest seller of merchandise in the league right now?
The Red Wings are the only team to sell more merchandise than they’re spending.
The Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs both have their eye on the Stanley Cup, but both teams also have an eye on selling a new uniform.
Toronto Maple Leaf owner and President Brendan Shanahan, has a lot of interest in bringing the NHL back to the North American market, but he wants to do it in a way that will be sustainable.
According to Sportsnet’s John Shannon, Shanahan and his business partner, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Co., are “not looking at it as a one-year deal.”
Shanahan said he wants Toronto to be able to buy merchandise and have it available for as long as the Maple Leafs want to sell it.
He also wants to sell merchandise to be on the court, which is where the Red Wings might be able tap into their potential.
Shananahan has said he hopes the team can sell out the arena for every game this season, and the Leafs have had some success doing so.
The Leafs will be playing the New York Rangers on Friday, but they’re still looking to sell out Madison Square Garden for every home game this year.
The Red Wing have a lot to be proud of, but there’s a lot that can go wrong in their pursuit of winning the Stanley Cups.
