I'm sorry but you're wrong and right here
It is a problem due to player salaries and the through the roof revenues are mostly consisting of a very few high revenue teams (the inequality that you are right about).
But the break-even teams which is the bulk is baaaaaaaaarely making a profit. The NHL as a whole is making ~3% profit which means that really inequality isn't the only problem.
*numbers I got were from an independent study made on nhlnumbers.com so not fudging from owners or players*
