Someone is going to need to show me some numbers to convince me that contraction (which most likely will never happen) is better economically for the league than a meaningful revenue-sharing program.

Contraction would likely result in a smaller national audience, therefore reducing the value of national television broadcasting rights. In fact, I would suspect that NBC/NHL have a clause in their contract pertaining to the value of their existing contract in the event the league dissolves a team. Anyone know if the TV contract is available to read anywhere?
