Once a player requests a trade it's time for both sides to move on, you're done, get what you can and part ways before things get messy. Instead Howson has chosen to not only drag it out past the deadline last season, but past thr draft and possibly into next season. The Rangers won't suffer, Nash will and other players will take note of how Columbus choses to do business.
good points, also that you noted how the Pens treated Staal. Staal said no, Pens, were pissed, but sent him where he wanted to go and got a fair deal. That was a very professional way of dealing with things. Staal is may lack the overall talent of Nash, but is a comparable player. Our initial deal for Nash was very appropriate.

Time to move on. Howdson knows what's there when July 1 hits.
