Columbus then replaces most of their staff with fresh hockey minds.
What did the Oilers learn from the Columbus experience? Hire Scott Howsen, the second worst GM in the NHL, as a scout. Yup, since then, the Oilers are on a heck of a winning streak.
This I agree with but with the team performing, there were obviously good pieces there beforehand. Howson did that.
That doesn't mean I like him here though, but hey, welcome back to the recycle club Scotty!
