I'm just getting tired of DNDTR draft and prospect articles that all imply that if Columbus somehow doesn't get MacKinnon that it would lead to Horrible Failure because There's Nobody Else. At All. Ever. We have enough gambling idiots out there wanting us to trade everything for MOAR PICKS without this kind of encouragement.

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