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.
Considering his rookie season I would have had a hard time looking past Mason as well. He was absolutely outstanding in his first NHL season.
