The arguement the large market teams would make against such a proposal is they made significantly higher initial investments to purchase their teams (more than 3 times in some cases), therefore they deserve to make significantly higher returns.

In lieu of that, they would want to be more competitive (luxury tax achieves this), so they could at least improve their chances of increasing their potential revenues to compensate for monies lost subsidizing small market teams.

Of course, small market owners have the numbers to push through whatever they want. The reason they don't is the large market owners might leave the NHL, and start their own league.
