Well, seeing as he'll likely be fired at some point, you'll be right (and get your wish) eventually.

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.
Fair enough. I stopped just short of that to allow for considered deliberation. Not that it couldn't lead me to agree.
