The Dispatch published a report today claiming the Jackets lost $25mil in the 2010-11 season, their 10th in the NHL. I remember telling Jason when the franchise was born that I'd be shocked if they made it 10 years in this town. While they aren't gone yet, I'm struggling to see how they make it in Columbus 5-10 more years. That said, I'm not a big hockey/CBJ fan by any stretch (though I'd hate to see them go) so I'm curious what the rest of you think. Will the CBJ survive in Columbus? If not, how many more years before they relocate/contract?

I guess the good news is the team doesn't appear to be on the verge of cutting payroll and we all know cities will support a winner.
