this trade isn't as bad as fans of other teams make it seem. Howson is just today's whipping boy.

This gives the Bluejackets good depth, Erixson a former 1st round pick, Anisimov, a former 2nd round pick. Dubinsky is a competent 2nd line center who is still young. And on top of it, you add another 1st round pick for one of the best draft years in a very long time.

Not only that, this is the type of trade where the assets will help the Bluejackets immediately. I wouldn't be disappointed with this trade considering Nash's cap hit and the restrictions that comes with trading him (nmc).
