There's a simple answer here: if the league expands, we're more likely to see 84 games than 62 unless it's a labor season.
Valid points. In a perfect world, the money saved by reduced team travel & expenses, lower player salaries (less games = less salary), and increased tickets sales (better on-ice product) would cancel the losses out.

Obviously, we don't live in a perfect world. Just fun to think about the possibilities of a shorter season...
