The revenue sharing will be a problem for all the teams that currently receive it. Although the NHL is proposing an increase to the revenue sharing pie, they are also reducing the restrictions for being eligible for revenue sharing. I posted an article from St. Louis that has the same concerns..... The pie might be bigger, but the number of teams eating the pie could be bigger, resulting in less pie for everyone.
