I doubt Howson wanted to bring in Wisniewski and trade for Jeff Carter. All signs were pointing towards a rebuild, but ownership wanted to make money in the playoffs so he kept missing out on premium talents in the draft.

He did a good job considering his obstacles. The only real fault that I would put on Howson is sticking with Mason for so long as goaltending was the only thing preventing that team from being a contender for the playoffs. Even then I don't blame him for hoping that Mason would get over his sports anxiety issues.
