I feel the league is watered down with hockey players who are not NHL caliber. removing 2 rosters helps this situation and will slightyl boost the other 28 markets.

The 28 team league makes the 4 conferences with 7 teams each very possible
This scenario would work if it were to be played out but I wouldn't say talent is watered down. More skilled players rather than less skilled players are in today's professional hockey world than 10 years ago. Move those 4 teams you mentioned up to Canada (Quebec City, Hamilton, Markham, Saskatchewan) screw Seattle.
The game can only improve and happen in this way when the NHLPA finally gets rid of Bettman which at this point looks inevitable.
