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.
