Contract a few, relocate some others to more efficient hockey markets (GTA, QC, Seattle), and then the remaining weaklings would benefit from revenue sharing the way it was initially intended. Rather than to sharply increase the taxation of the efficient markets, the league should instead place its franchises in locations capable of largely standing on their own. One of the guests on Prime Time Sports (Fan 590/Sportsnet) on Friday stated that three NHL teams last season lost an average of $35 million each. Those three locations should be immediately dropped by the NHL like a hot potato and by whatever means necessary.
