Could the Jackets eventually move?

From Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch:

There is a notion that the Blue Jackets' franchise is unstable, and can be easily packaged for transport to Kansas City, Mo., or Hamilton, Ontario. This notion is not born of random patter.

Although the Jackets have improved their on-ice product -- from 62 points in 2003-04, before the lockout, to 80 points last season -- they've been well behind the curve of other recent expansion teams. They're the only team in the 30-team league that has yet to make the playoffs.

Read the rest of Arace's article here.

Arace points out the reasons why the Jackets could possibly move, so it will be interesting to see how the team progresses in the next few seasons and if the team's struggles continue. If the Jackets are put on sale, there won't be a lack of interest.

Ballhype: hype it up!
