a few things have come to mind about Howson being a potentially great short term hire.

The Blue Jackets are destined for the 1st overall pick this year unless the Flames can outsuck them. Theyt are going to be trading off some of their vets and we may have some interest if we are anywhere close to a playoff spot. Howson kows them better than anyone else.

COlumbus has been forced to rebuild through the draft and have made that a corporate priority. Howson would know just about everything the org knows abiout this years' players and the last few years. He might lead us to a gem that we were going to miss.

If the total cost for this inside information is a few hundred thousand dollars salary, we would be stupid to not hire Howson.
