Credit goes to Carolina for that one (not to mention, Joey still has plenty of time to hone his game).
That's true. My only point was a pretty good player went right away after Johansen so there may have been something there Howson maybe should have seen. But that was the only one in his tenure that you could even question. This only makes the point that Howson wasn't really a bad drafter, just didn't have a bad enough team to get the talent.
