Habs gate receipts are likely four times that of each of the bottom 10 teams in the league, and two times that of each of the next ten teams. You think they'll give that money away?

Extreme example yes, but it means the top 10 teams in home revenue lose their shirts vs the bottom 10 teams. Will not happen. An 80-20 split maybe.
It happens in other leagues like the NFL. If you want the sunbelt franchises to be viable then it might be the way. Personally, I'm for a combination of relocation and contraction to get rid of the bottom feeders.
