I don't know. I think I'd stick with the guy who is pegged as a top prospect and is smart enough to recognize that playing at an exhibition skills competition all-star showcase game can't really do anything to help him but could end up hurting him...
Plus how can you hate a guy who gives an interview like this:
Hey, I just went to NHL to see what they said about our win. I was excited! Found that, read it and shared it. Y'all make up your own minds. After what we've been through with prospects, it's worth noting.
We now have a new team to watch in 2nd to last place. Scott Howson's FORMER team - the Edmonton Oilers. Yeah that's right. Scott Howson's current and former teams are the two worst in the NHL. This guy's a keeper!
