Well, spin it anyway you want so that you don't lose faith in the Captain of this ship, especially in light of the Carter pick up but Filatov was wasted by this organization. We cannot rock the cradle and develop talent. Why anyone has faith in our system is beyond my imagination. Wanna talk about Jake? He came on like a rocket and then stalled in his development too.

Howson has made changed recently in the scouting departments and all across the board to correct this. He knows it too. I'm just disappointed that he couldn't hang on to Nik one more year and see if he could turn it around.

Oh well. Howson doesn't give a **** what I think. He's just trying to hang on to his job.
