This is why I have a hard time believing all the "the majority of the league is losing money" talk. Florida makes money because of the arena deal they have, but since a lot of it isn't hockey related, or a lot of it is hockey related but falls outside of HRR, they can just sweep that under the rug and claim that they're losing money. I've read too many articles about the profitability of the teams to trust the league on this. HRR is financial double speak.
You're right - actually there are a bunch of little grey areas in there.
For example - the Tampa Bay Times Forum just put in a new HD scoreboard, which they want to include solely as a hockey cost. Despite the fact that it will be used during concerts and other events. And revenue from these events does not count towards HRR.
