I think the PA will realize this and ask for 52 or 53%

The conclusion is simple, the NHL can't be a successful and profitable league as it currently stands with 30 teams. The NHL should have 24 teams, Phoenix, Columbus and South Florida are axed right away. Then choose three from a group of Anaheim, Carolina, NJ, NYI, Nashville and Tampa
There is no way 6 owners are going to give up franchises.
The PA won't give up 120 jobs
The Canadian cities won't let franchises fold, they'll want them.
