This is not a real business world, your talking about a sport. If you closed every team that has been loosing money for the last 5 yrs you would end up with like 8-10 treams. Your talking a ton of fans, revenue, growth gone. This is exactly what the NHL and the NHLPA don't want.

I bet if the NHL threatened to contract the NHLPA would be more than happy to agree to a real 50/50 split and all the contract changes.
