Columbus is a great town with a great Arena District. No it's not New York City, but calm down on the pretentiousness. Detroit is a fun city if you know where to go, but it's not exactly the tourism capital of the world itself.

And you'd be surprised how many hockey fans are in Columbus if they'd ever put a decent team on the ice. Let alone how many Red Wings fans there are in the area. Anytime I wear Wings gear out someone gives me a 'Go Wings'.

If you hadn't seen a Lions game before 2001 you would have thought no one in Detroit cared about football.

Also, the Blue Jackets aren't going anywhere. Renegotiating of the lease to Nationwide have pretty much guaranteed the Jackets aren't going anywhere until 2039.

I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Nashville would be great too. Had a great time there this summer. Bridgestone Arena is right there on Broadway with all the bars and things to do downtown too. Saw Social Distortion there at the Ryman Auditorium (the original Grand Ole Opry), so thankfully it wasn't all country music.

I guess he wanted to see what it looked like to have a competitive NHL team playing in Columbus.

Well, at least Rick Nash is guaranteed a spot now. :P

Good for Columbus. Indifferent on where it is pretty much every year. Would be cool if it was in Winnipeg soon since they now have a franchise again.

I thought Winnipeg would have been a great choice too. The fan there are ape s*** about hockey! Having an ASG there would have been crazy
