The only way to do revenue sharing and not have serious infighting is a set of rules that all teams must follow to get the cash. You can loosen up the rules but it must apply to every teams. And with looser rules more teams will qualify for revenue sharing and the money will have to be divided fairly.

It not a bad idea but that system will need some league standard that teams will have to meet otherwise you're back to square one. Plus you likely have to move the Leafs or the Habs in the west otherwise you have the Habs and Leafs sharing both with each other their gate six times.
