Furthermore to this...

Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson is understandably nervous heading into the NHL entry draft later this month.

Howson wants Everett Silvertips defenceman Ryan Murray who was good enough to get minutes for Canada at the recent world hockey championship in Helsinki, Finland, at the age of 18 but the Blue Jackets pick second.
I wouldn't have been reading anything into it if Howson had no Edmonton ties, but he spent plenty of years there and would have obviously have some sort of relationship with some people in the EDM media, so you have to believe it could be accurate.
