My issue isn't with those that are losing money yearly who are attempting to be competitive (say Columbus who spent nearly to the cap), but those who are being conservative (Florida, Nashville, St Louis, etc) who still have issues breaking even. I'm not saying that every team needs to post a profit... but they should certainly be able to (or break even) if they're well run and well managed. That's NOT the case today.
Sharks being a great example of this. Often cited as one of the most well run franchises in the league. Also used as a model for an expansion franchise done right. They are still losing money, reportedly $15m last season.

That does not happen if the league were healthy.
