I don't know, I tend to lean towards "coincidence" on this one. If Bettman seriously was looking to derail a protest in Columbus on Saturday, I think he'd have made the official announcment on Friday. I certainly don't believe the protest had anything to do with the decision to select Columbus at the 2013 host, which would have been made weeks ago, and more likely was influenced by the ownership/arena deal last summer and the construction of the new Hilton in the Short North.

In any case, its a nice perk for STH's, assuming they'll get a fair shot tickets. Those guys are paying for this team, and have every right to be upset with the results. I doubt if I'll take the kids down for this, as I'm guessing that would run me upwards of 2k to grab 4 decent seats. I could grab a pair of lower bowl seats for 20 games for the price tag.
