Here is how I see it (with number of teams between parenthesis) :

No ''Original 6'' team (6).
No Canadian Teams (4).
Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Los Angeles, San Jose, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, New York Islanders, Washington, St. Louis (10)
So that's 20 teams that should never be eliminated.

The 10 remaining teams can be divided in two categories :
Teams that will have a hard time get out of their struggle : Florida, Carolina
Teams that have some kind of off-ice struggle (money, attendance, new team, etc.) but should rectify the situation in the next 5 years : Columbus, Nashville, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Atlanta, Phoenix, Anaheim

So the first 20 teams I named are those that, in my opinion, shouldn't be eliminated.
