imo the best thing that could happen to the nhl would be to eliminate 6 teams and go back to a 24-team league...the league's over-expansion creates a majority of the current problems...

however i disagree completely with the idea that columbus should be one of the first teams to go. other then being a new franchise there is no reason to consider them...last year they sold 95.6% of their tickets. for a new market with not a very good team that is damn good and it will only get better as rick nash and zherdev take the team to the next level. they will be successful down the road...

a team that gets support when they aren't winning shouldn't even be brought into the equation. the teams that should be evaluted are the ones that only get support when they are in the stanley cup finals (or even more important the teams that still don't get support when they are in the finals)
