The Mens rooms still have the old style horse trough's (sp?). Secondly, the team sucks. If the players develop and they become competitive again, the team will do well financially.
If they are going to move Carolina, it should be back to Hartford. The state was ready to build them a a state-of-the-art arena, and they played to 95% capacity their final year in Hartford.
Columbus is a very good hockey market, not sure where that came from.
Contract six teams and go back to four divisions and the divisional play-off format. Re-kindle the rivalries like we had in the 80's. If I had to pick six I would say Phoenix, Anaheim, Nashville, Carolina, Ottawa, and Buffalo.
