It doesnt matter how good a person might be at their job - sometimes they just don't fit or just arent the right person for the job. We've had a long run of futility here and the idea of bringing back yet another member of the hockey ops team that oversaw - to whatever extent - the building of the craptastic teams we've had since the Cup run is nothing but humiliating. Plus, its just another body that will have to be fired once Tambo is booted. Find someone new - its time for a new perspective in hockey ops with this team, not the same-old-same-old.
Howson was gone by the time the team started going to crap and he left because he had a better opportunity in CBJ
