I will never argue that Columbus is a "hockey town", its just not. Its been built on football. Last nights game had a great atmosphere because of the Toronto fans. Normally its not an exciting environment unless a goal is scored, a fight, or the final 3 minutes of the game.
But thats also not to say it cant succeed here, but its the same as probably 80% of the other locations....win and they will come, lose, and they'll stay away. Is Dallas a "hockey town", no, but they won and they supported it. The key is winning, no one wants to support a loser when you dont have a culture of hockey in its past, and regardless of the Chill, or the Owls, that is not in the culture.
