Pshaw. I wish we could have had the level of success that y'all have had with Poile. I think there's a good chance Howson could pull it off (if his long-term bets on the likes of Brassard, Vermette, Klesla, and eventually Voracek and Mason pay off), but that puts us about six or seven years behind the whole rest of the world.

Every GM has their missteps now and again. To borrow from another in-division example, witness Ken Holland's inexplicable mancrush on Todd Bertuzzi. That doesn't necessarily make them bad, or trending downward, tho.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
