30 is probably too much. They had it right pre-1998 in my opinion with 26 teams. 16 still make the playoffs and the talent is spread around a bit better.

Hockey gets criticized for not progressing back in the day, and they should have earlier, but it wasn't until 1958 that Baseball of all sports was finally west of St. Louis with the Giants and Dodgers moving out west. It was 9 years later with the NHL expansion, so the NHL wasn't THAT far behind I don't think.
