A true free market is gloomy for the NHLPA. 8-10 teams fold.

Ironically the average salary goes up while player's salaries go down. Yes that makes sense if you think about. The average salary goes up because the teams you drop off the lowest paying teams. The best players from those teams force out the weakest salary players on the remaining teams, the stars on those remaining clubs then have to share that clubs weath around with the new comers. Same payroll more + more talent = less salary each.

Salaries might well go down substantially even if they don't (see above post)
