You have to trust owners to run their franchises properly. In no other way is a franchise going to thrive no matter where you put it. I'm convinced that as long as you're not completely ridiculous, really good ownership can succeed just about anywhere.

Jamison is the latest example and I know they know him from his days in San Jose, but they need to be honest about whether or not he can keep that team actually going. I think the answer is a no, but once again they aren't caring enough.
You cannot justify columbus while leaving Hartford.
