I would guess we'll know whether he was successful or not by the end of this season. I'm not sure that, should it prove not, it would result in his immediate dismissal. I'll be comfortable with it, though, if it did. By the same token, if there is evidence to show the plan is working/has worked, I'm comfortable in keeping Howson around.
I have a simpler mantra--no playoffs, no Howson.

I don't care what other "progress" is arguably visible. (Re)building the minor leagues is nice, but it is one of his lesser duties. The primary duty is to achieve on-ice success. And, given the difficult spot this team is in financially, it cannot afford to continue to simply hope for the best another season. Howson has played with fire and if he gets burned, he should suffer the consequence.
