The NHL is a single business operating 30 franchises. What is good for the smaller franchises must be considered in the equation.

The owners (the NHL) offers prices at what the market will bear in any given location (ever see the price of a Big Mac in Paris?).

As partners the owners have banded together to control labor costs and the NHLPA has willingly agreed to this arrangement.
What if the NY Islanders chose only to spend 30 million and make a profit? The only part that would support your argument is that it hurts the game by intentionally cheaping out, which is not illegal.
