Found March 11, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, You have to wonder what is going to happen to Howson in the off-season. Do the Jackets keep a franchise player or a failed GM? Wonder if they’ll have to make a choice? If Howson is ousted, then whoever inherits the mess might be able to convince captain Nash to withdraw his demand for a trade. Sources say Nash is tired of losing. He doesn’t want to end up like Edmonton’s Ryan Smyth, playing for Team Canada at the world championship every spring. Perhaps, if Nash saw a light at the end of the tunnel, he’d stay. There just isn’t one now. more topics llike this… Everybody is wondering what’s wrong with the Sharks and there’s a lot fingers being pointed at G Antti Niemi. He won a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks, but didn’t exactly steal the title for Chicago, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. A lack of blue-line depth hasn’t helped this season, either.
