The Isles have been at the bottom in the league for a decade yet they are never mentioned as being a franchise that should be moved.
The teams that move aren't the teams that do the worst. They're the teams that are for sale. Now, often the teams that lose the most money and are for sale ARE the worst teams. But that doesn't mean all bad teams are for sale or that all bad teams are to be moved.
Bottom line is whether or not McConnell wants to sell. If anyone has heard him change his mind about owning the team, let them speak up.
Numerous teams are for sale or are looking for a new owner in the NHL. Hilariously and most frustratingly for those who wear maple leaf underwear, Columbus isn't one of them.
