I want real competition between the very best, not the muddled, mediocre mess the league currently represents.
The NHL will NEVER support contraction because contraction means no major TV contract and everyone (except for some big market sports fans) realizes that TV revenue is the future of professional sports. Even the players and the PA understand that a bigger league equals a bigger/better TV contract which means more revenue to split (not to mention more NHL jobs for players). Again if you are holding out hope for league contraction or the league getting rid of the salary cap you are wasting your time. Go watch junior hockey and be done with the NHL; professional sports in North America are not for you.
