The NFL system won't work for the NHL because NFL gets most of it's money from the national TV contract. In all other sports, each team has local TV contracts that make up a large sum of the teams earnings. A Team like the NYR would in no way shape or form want to share local revenue with other smaller market teams(since dolans owns both the rangers and MSG network, he could always just sell the rights to himself for a buck to really screw the agreement).
