I have no problem with any of the players you mention, but the draft picks and prospects should be hidden away from Howson right now.
I think, barring a miracle run, it's likely he will pay the price eventually for the team's struggles this year. It is a deep draft and we've already lost our 4th and 5th rounder. Howson starts using the 2nd and 3rd rounder to save his job and the next regime is left with little to work with if they are hoping to switch directions. I think our prospect pool is decent and I don't want to see it destroyed with wild moves to save a lost season.
However, if we can get a solid defensive defenseman and goaltending help using the NHL players you listed, then go for it.
