The Cleveland Browns, despite consistent on-field struggles, were the 50th-ranked team with a valuation of $1.95 billiona€”thata€™s $200 million more than the 50th-ranked team last year. By comparison, the New York Rangers wereA listed byA ForbesA in DecemberA as the NHLa€™s richest franchise with an estimated value of $1.5 billion.

The Rangers were one of four NHL teams with a valuation of at least $1 billion. Original Six franchises Toronto Maple Leafs ($1.4 billion), Montreal Canadiens ($1.25 billion) and Chicago Blackhawks ($1 billion) were the others.
