Yep, this is a consistent problem, which is why Columbus is always similar to teams like Florida as opposed to Pittsburgh or Edmonton. It is amazing how a couple "truly horrible" seasons can benefit a franchise in the long run, as opposed to a bunch of "pretty bad" ones. Suffice to say, the Jackets have pretty much always had the latter I'm just kind of hoping at this point that--barring an intervention of the hockey gods, where the Jackets win 20 games in a row or something (which is what I'd really want)--they don't play much better than .500 the rest of the season, because after the atrocious start, one would think that this would still leave them dead last in the league.
