On top of that, Howson rejected essentially the saime package from New York at the trade deadline, therefore giving the idea that Howson wants the moon for Nash.

Now all of a sudden, he lets go of his tight reins and take Dubinsky, Anisimov, Erixon and (potentially late) 1st rounder for his superstar? With all due respect to NYR's assets, they simply don't compare to the likes of Couture, Skinner, Schenn and Couturier from the potential standpoint...

So now you understand why Howson has no credibility, and ultimately no respect from the hockey community after he shows up with a trade like this.
No its pretty smart. Ask for as much as you can to run the price up knowing you cant get it. Howson was in a REALLY tight situation, with very limited options.
