About Columbus Blue Jackets Autographed Photos
Sources say that it was in the year 1978 when the famous Cleveland Barons made an exit and then the fans in Ohio who loved hockey waited for about another twenty two odd years to finally play hosts to any other upcoming hockey team in the NHL. During that time the buzz around was that Columbus was planning to expand and set up a bid in the year 1997 which brought in other cities for bidding as well, just when the Rick Nash Signed Photograph - 16X20 and several other photos of the Blue Jackets were making their presence felt in the arena of NHL.
Gary Bettman was the then League Commissioner who paid a visit to Columbus and met the leaders of the community to set up a proposal based on the lines of a franchise and not a referendum. However, the leaders were skeptic of a franchise model and told Gary that if it failed he would have to pay the expense from his own pocket in full. John H. McConnell was one of the bidders who supported Gary with the franchise model cause and assured the birth of the arena through his belief and not through that of a referendum. The referendum finally collapsed in May and in 1997 in May it was declared by Nationwide that they would take over the project for a sum of $150 million. In the days to come NHL also promised to Columbua a new franchise that would be set up.
