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.
I agree, but I'm beginning to wonder if building a winner in Columbus is even possible
