Rangers are NHL’s most valuable team again in annual Forbes rankings
For the second straight year the New York Rangers are the NHL’s most valuable franchise.
Forbes annual NHL team valuations puts the Rangers as the NHL’s most valued organization, currently listed at $1.25 billion, which is up from $1.2 billion last season. The Montreal Canadiens stayed at No. 2 ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs in part because the Habs brought in the most operating income. Both the Canadiens and Maple Leafs missed the playoffs last year. The Maple Leafs held the top spot from 2006 until last season.
