He has a pretty good reputation. I don't recall anything he's said that was too far off base or highly speculative. He may only have a better handle than some Vancouver writers because he probably heard it through CBJ management position on the issue. I bet he just asked someone in CBJ organization what status was on CBJ trading for Luongo and got the "Columbus not on his radar right now, he's trying to get back to Florida" response." Which probably means Howson has at least tested the waters.
