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.
Teams like Nashville lose money because they're in poor hockey markets.
