The only issue for the union is how that money gets rearranged between them. I know I believe each should get what they can rightfully earn, with as little artificial interference as possible. That puts all players on the same playing field. If you're not Crosby, why would you think he should make less so you should make more? (You may want that to be the case, but that doesn't make it right.)
As for #2, I like billybudd's reply to your other post on the same vein, so I won't reinvent the wheel here:
There won't be 30 teams in "your NHL". That's a loss of "Folded Teams" x 24/25 jobs per team.
