i read somewhere that the Oilers had 6 employees gathering and analyzing advanced stats. None of these guys will make a trade but they provide information that is useful to the guys who have to make decisions.

IMO, Howson is a smart guy who was in an impossible situation. The CLB organization is in much better condition now that it was when he got there. If he can add more analysis to the decision making group, then I am all for it.

The old days of 1 guy like Burke running the show are over. This is big business now and owners demand modern business practices.
