Howson is trying to make up for years of mismanagement with one fell swoop...and that doesn't happen.

That's on top of the fact that the Blue Jackets gave Rich Nash the type of contract a small market, middling team has to give to a homegrown star to get him to stay for long term. Those contracts are very, very difficult to trade, because they're overpayments.

If Eric Staal ever had a falling out with the Hurricanes, trading him would be very difficult, because, like Nash, he has a terrible contract.
