It is a fairly major problem. A problem that couldn't, and shouldn't, be ignored. I'm always ready to admit when I'm seeing successful things Scott Howson did, but when you look at really the last 3 full seasons on the ice, The way his teams quit on coaching..... I mean, it was bad under MacLean, but for my money, the most depressing on ice performances mostly occured under Howson. Not just because they are fresh in my mind either, getting blownout in 9-2 games, 8-0 games, 10-1 games..... And worse, it was a rather consistent outcome. It would be impossible to justify him staying employed as the General Manager here.
