Moving these 3 teams to the markets suggested would result in more revenue for the league. The problem is that just moving teams doesn't solve the NHL's problems ( assuming the current CBA is still being used). It's all connected and linked.... revenue goes up... the cap goes up... the players salaries go up... all that happens is you end up with new teams that become your bottom 3 financially struggling markets. The problem doesn't get fixed just by moving teams, it's a lot more complicated than that.
Why not just have the cap lower then going into the future? I still say in that situation, you remove 3 teams who's markets are more sensitive to losses then the other 27. (Although the argument over most sensitive markets could be a whole other thread....)
