There are not 30 north American markets that can or will operate under a 50m floor. There just aren't. There aren't even 20.
The NHL does plan on paying for its expansion plan by reducing the salaries of its employees who are extremely overpaid.
With a lower cap, many of these franchises can and will survive. Contraction makes no sense.
