The teams exploiting the cap loopholes aren't the ones clamoring for a new CBA because they're losing money (aside of possibly NJ). The rift between the "haves" and the "have nots" is what's causing the new for a restructured CBA, as the "haves" revenue is increasing at a rate where the "have nots" can no longer afford to spend the salary floor each season.

That leaves four basic solutions:
Lower the players' cut of revenue (NHLPA doesn't like that one)
Lower the cap floor (NHLPA won't like that one)
Increase revenue sharing (Rich owners don't like that one)
Contraction (Neither party wants that one)
