Not only would the NHLPA be opposed to losing those teams, the league would probably be opposed, as well the ownership groups and the fans of those teams.

So, what can you do about those six teams? Is solving the problems with those six teams going to do enough to fix the problems with the league as a whole? Seems like both sides are ignoring the big problem and trying to "win" these negotiations. Maybe if they started by trying to come up with a solution that helps to fix problems with just those six teams and then worked from there, we'd see more progress.

This doesn't have to be a zero-sum game, but the NHLPA and the NHL sure seem to be treating it that way.
