In a surprising turn of events, the Columbus Blue Jackets were forced to pay $60 million in arena repairs.

It's no secret that it costs money to get a NHL team. Owners not only need to pay for the team and its players, they also need to spend money on the team's facilities.
Unfortunately for the Columbus Blue Jackets owner John P. McConnell, he'll need to pay $60 million in repairs at the Nationwide Arena.
Many issues need to be addressed, such as the roof, the cooling towers, a new scoreboard and many more.
A new report shed light on all the changes that will me made this summer:
Roof - $9 million
Cooling Towers - $7.5 million
New Scoreboard - $8.5 million
Fire Alarm replacement - $2.5 million
Suite renovations - $1 million
Club Level renovations - $1.7 million
Concession stand overhaul - $1.5 million
Party Tower LED improvements - $675k

While some of these changes aren't necessary, they should contribute to make the Blue Jackets' fans experience more enjoyable.
With many interesting young players coming into the NHL in Columbus, the owners probably felt like they needed to do something else to attract the fans into the building on game nights.
Now, they'll need to win a few games.
Details and updates will follow.
