You spent an awful lot of time on nothing there. These owners are in the business of running hockey teams. They're not going to run them into the ground to avoid revenue sharing. They would sell first. These are not fixed situations like the ecology ones that are the basis for the economic theory you're so fond of.
And that other thing you just mentioned about selling other things in the stadium? Yeah, that stuff is outlined as being part of HRR. The kind of thing you're talking about is exactly why you need a union as part of this equation.
I agree that this shouldn't be a no-fail economics situation. But the same argument applies towards there not being a salary cap in the first place. It isn't the player's responsibility to ensure that all teams run in the black. That's the owner's responsibility.
