Forbes Releases List of Top 10 Richest Sports Owners

The L.A. Times put out the list of the Top 10 Richest Sports Owners. The data came from the Forbes 400 list so these owners would be of American Teams.

1. E. Stanley Kroenke and Ann Walton Kroenke. Stan owns the Avalanche and Nuggets
2. Mark Cuban. Owner of the Dallas Mavericks
3. Malcolm Glazer. Owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
4. H. Wayne Huizenga. Owner of the Miami Dolphins
5. Michael E. Heisley Sr., Owner of the Memphis Grizzlies
6. B. Thomas Golisano, Owner of the Buffalo Sabres
7. Michael Illitch, Owner of the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers
8. Drayton McLane Jr., Owner of the Houston Astros
9. Jeremy Jacobs. Owner of the Boston Bruins
10. Robert Kraft. Owner of the New England Patriots.

Four of the top 10 American Owners own an NHL franchise of some sort. Maybe the league is not in such a bad situation after all.
