It used to be worse for us. Thanks to MacLean being an idiot and a fool Dallas was drafting with our second-round draft pick three years in a row (2002, 2003, 2004), and one of those was Loui Eriksson.

You'd think after that we'd have learned our lesson about trading any draft picks at all to Dallas. Sadly, Howson was still brand-new to Columbus at the time and nobody had warned him.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
