The problem for Columbus is that they don't have 8 decades and multiple generations of fan history to fall back on. Columbus gets a team about a decade ago, and then gets put
into one of the worst alignments in the league
. On top of that, they've been poor at drafting and developing players as an organization.
I wouldn't quite go that far. Being in a Division with Detroit and Chicago is by far not the worst case scenario for Columbus. Plus Nashville and St Louis in that Division, and the Division itself is certainly a reasonable enough alignment.
