If they tank and crash, which a definite possibility then they will be doing what was expected. Whereas the Oilers seem to struggling to get out of the basement. I don't think its out of line to expect us to be doing better then Columbus at this point.
All I'm saying is you get this in hockey and most team sports all the time. You know, theres no reason at all for SJ to be as far down the pack as they are but they are. For the most part things settle out and the top 8 I expect to be there this year are there.
I'll say this, surviving this org in the mid 90's and recent years I want no part of having to stomach what Columbus is going to be going through. More to the point I don't think they even have the fanbase to continue to support losing clubs without any marquee player. Its a hard team to love for sure. If BJ fans can love this they might manage to keep a club in town.
