No, I'm arguing against helping teams that aren't helping themselves. Giving teams handouts so they can keep running their teams poorly is not a conclusion, it only allows the real problem to continue longer.

You've got 1 out of 30 teams who could POSSIBLY meet this description. Then again if Phoenix can improve it's product with the lowest pre-RS revenue in the league, Columbus isn't necessarily going to be crappy for the next 20 years.
If you take a look at the teams losing a lot of money they have two things in common, they haven't had sustained success on the ice and they've made poor business decisions off of it. One season of "success" (is making the playoffs really success in a 30 team league where 16 make it?) isn't going to turn around years of damage.

The league is going to get 50% of HRR, that will help. The rest needs to be made up by teams doing a better job of running their business.

EVERYONE WINS with revenue sharing, except those who want to see franchises relocate.
Nobody wins with giving revenue sharing to teams being run poorly except that inept owner.
