It's become popular to unload on current GM Scott Howson. But to be perfectly honest, look at the roster and farm system he inherited. If you look at the roster in June of 2007, it looked like an expansion draft roster that had Rick Nash on it. No other under-30 NHL talent except Nikolai Zherdev. No one in the farm system to speak of. The drafting/development has been night and day since the MacLean days, but it's not an overnight process to pull out of that.
Wow, dont ever say that on the Leaf boards, apparently it IS an overnight process.
As for the Bjs, keep em in the west. I like them and if they came over here that would have to change......
