Anyone who has ever been to Columbus has wondered for years why they have a pro sports franchise let alone hockey. It's a head scratcher kinda like the Jaguars in Jacksonville. It's too bad they can't get the ownership settled in Phoenix though. It's a huge market and long term success in Phoenix would be great for the NHL. Either way I am not a fan of contraction.
