The people driving this are; TOR,MTL,BOS,PITT,PHI,NYR. Those owners DO NOT want to subsidize the league. The only Reason teams like the Yankees/Redsox are ok doing that in MLB; is because the luxury tax is a drop in the bucket for them.
It's been speculated by reputable reporters (such as Elliott Friedman) that it is the teams losing money who are the driving forces behind this. Anaheim, Dallas, St. Louis, Colorado, Florida, and the Islanders are all teams he listed (that I can recall off the top of my head) recently as teams being the most hardline in this.
