Howson moved him too quickly and perhaps could have done better holding on, particularly since all portents point to a delayed start to the season.
I disagree...I think he should have traded him at the deadline. He likely would have gotten a better deal at that point, prices are always artificially inflated at that point of the season. Not saying he did terribly with what he got, but I think he needed to get a blue chip prospect like Kreider to at least save some face and the trade deadline was the best opportunity to make that happen IMO.
