That is impossible. Although I agree it's what the owners seem to want.

There are several NHL teams in poor hockey markets where they can't draw flies unless the team is a cup contender. There are several other teams that are losing money due to years of rotten management and losing hockey. Do these poorly-run organizations really deserve to be making a profit?

At any given point, 20-25 teams should be making a profit. The worst organizations in the league (Carolina, Florida, Anaheim, Washington, etc) should not in the state they're in right now and with the decision's they've made.

Obviously there should be some market correction. But that correction should not be to the level that every organization in the league makes money no matter how poorly they're run and how many games they lose.
