Power play opportunities dropped in Gary Bettman's 1st season (93-94). And the expansion teams have been much more competitive from Gary Bettmans 2nd year (94-95) onward when power play opportunities were halved from the previous season.

But like I said, it might be too late anyway. Expansion teams or no expansion teams the officials may not take their job serious regardless. Or maybe they're instructed to put their whistles away from above. Not sure what's going on there.
