Howson was also AGM in Edmonton and GM of the Oilers' farm team before being in Columbus. He has a relationship with Sather that comes from well before the Nash discussions.

Of course, so does MacTavish. I find the Tambellini firing to be odd. The team in pretty clearly in a transition year this season. They aren't the worst team in the league anymore, but they aren't a playoff team yet either. There was still improvement. Who knows what politicking went on behind the scenes. Tambellini did fire MacT as coach, so there might be some bad blood there and MacT might've been lobbying for Tambellini's job.
