It didn't turn into a profit this season, making the playoffs 4 times in 18 years isn't going to be turned around overnight.

Columbus, on the other hand, spent to the cap and were terrible. They have an incompetent GM, have since they came into the league. They've lost loads of money in that time... makes sense to me.

Some teams are well run and still lose money, those teams need help. Nashville comes to mind. Most of the teams losing money should be losing money, they're poorly run businesses.
