Granted, it would not affect row 1-5, but row 30-35 (or whatever the bottom of the bowl goes back to for example). Those are still higher valued seats that all 30 teams, not just 3, would be losing. Not to mention the arenas would have to have construction at the cost of the team owners to re-adjust the size of the rinks and any other factors that would be affected by it.
It's nice to say make the ice bigger, and I agree it would improve the overall game, but it's not feasible for teams who are already losing money.
