Unlikely but Possible Solution for CBA

Here is a crazy idea that still has many many holes. But please me out and then break out the criticism.

As of right now, about 2/3 of the teams in the league are losing money. However most of those teams only experience deficits of about 10 million dollars give or take.

The majority of those teams are non-playoff teams. If those teams could acquire 10 million dollars in revenues, the state of the league would be much better off.


Add two new teams to the league to increase the size of the league from 30 to 32.

We could add an additional round to the playoffs so 32 - 16 - 8 - 4 - 2 - 1 formats would come into play. All teams would then benefit from playoff revenue. About 2-3 home games would be played. Thats about 6-7 million dollars in Ticket + Beer revenue, about 1 million in merchandise revenue and about 2 million dollars in television rights revenue. This would give all teams around 10 extra million dollars while the NHLPA will still remain relatively happy.
