If you contracted 10 teams than the 18th, 19th, and 20th teams in the league would be on verge of bankruptcy as they would have to pay more money for players. And eventually you will just have 2 teams with this logic.
There is no reason for contraction. even the smallest revenue teams make plenty enough money to be successful with proper salary constraints.
Do players strike in the AHL? Do they strike in the Swedish or Swiss leagues? Players get fraction of the salaries in these leagues and they still exist.
