If they had two top centers available I'd say go for it. I don't see much in UFA's this year.

Personally, I like what Howson has done. Maybe he could have gotten more for Federov had he pulled the string earlier, but what if the Jackets had come out of the all-star break like they started the season? I figure Howson waited to see which way the wind was blowing, and I think he would have kept Federov for a playoff run.

That would have done a lot more for the team than a second round pick. But I doubt if Federov would have brought us there anyway, so we got something for him and dumped a salary he will never really earn. And got something.

Honestly, I don't think the Hockey Press knows we exist, or gives the Jackets the slightest respect. Howson promised us the best team we've ever had, and he and Hitch have delivered.

This time next year we'll be talking about our first round opponent.
