In this case we are not talking 30 individual businesses, per se. Every one of these businesses need the other 29 to viable to maximize the revenue sources for the league as a whole. Right now their is a disparity in the league in terms of revenue, that if left unchecked makes the league not viable with checks and balances such as the cap and revenue sharing. Each team generates as much revenue as they can, and it benefits both themselves and the league as a whole.
If the Leafs and Rangers hated the situation so much they could go make their own 6 team league, see how much they can maximize their revenue there. But they won't, since they realize that the league itself is important and it is important to ensure that all the teams are doing as best as they possibly can.
This is so self-evident I can't understand why people don't get it
