This is part of why I'm pretty forgiving of Howson despite no longer being in the "no, you just can't fire him" crowd. That and the fact that it would have taken a turnaround of Lou Lamoriello proportions to make something out of what MacLean left behind. He's had too many of his own self-driven screwups, though.

I still think he's capable of getting the job done. I no longer have faith that it's likely, though.

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