The problem here is that Columbus completely destroys your reasoning. Its failure means that the traditional market areas such as the northeast corrodor, do not offer the solution to the problem of failed hockey franchises in exactly the same way Minnesota's original failure and the mediocrity of the Wild means the exact same thing
