How often are you going to be able to acquire a 25 year old, 6'5", right handed shooting defenseman, with 5 years of NHL experience, that scored 16 goals the season before for a mid-level prospect? Geeeez.
Just a reminder. Howson and the coaching staff might not have the same impressions on his overall game that you do. That and Howson likely doesn't know what the contract demands are. I find it unlikely that's it's 1.4 per year, however.

If we trade Ruth and get a guy that wants 3.5 mil, it's pretty much a waste.
