I don't think people realize the how it would hurt them if the league booted out all the unprofitable teams.
They think it will solve all problems, they must not be NFL fans. Even in the NFL fans bicker about the "Bad Markets" like Jacksonville, who even as the worst franchise in the league are making money.

Lets pretend that chopping the bottom 10 teams from the NHL wouldn't damage it's imagine nationally... fans of the top 5 teams would STILL ***** about the 18th, 19th, 20th teams in the league.

The ONLY long-term solution for the NHL is 30/32 markets spread across the continent with at least a decent chance to break even each year. Some fans are just too shortsighted to realize that, but at least they aren't the ones in charge.
