The NHL doesn't legally have the power to do that. If the 30 teams were to act in collusion to try and dictate labour terms, you'd have one heck of anti-trust lawsuit filed by some very wealthy and powerful individuals.

It would be up to each individual team to decide they don't want to be in operation... and I suspect none of the 30 owners in the league are dumb enough to throw away the $4b in combined equity that the 30 teams have.
