I'm inclined to put Howell at 6 at best.
As far as his playoff play, people in the HOH threads seemed to indicate that it wasn't particularly good, but like I said, no sources on that.
Do you have Coulter and Gadsby in front of him? I do. But then I remind myself that Howell's # is retired and wonder if I'm missing something. Does anyone want to make a case for how to rank these three?
