This is just one move in the grand scheme (there is a grand scheme, right? ) for the future of the Jackets. Iím not going to pass too much judgement on this until I see what moves follow.

It is a big picture, not a small one.
First bad move he's made in my opinion. I still like Howson. I think the outcry comes from fear that if he overpays other players like he has Chimera, there won't be enough for the impact players we really need.

Yes, it's only one move. But there's only one budget.
