I think he'll do well there. He has 3 1st rounders to work with this year

Mentioned this on TSN yesterday.

Knew him from St. Louis. Can't do worse than Howsen.

If anyone's wondering it's pronounced: YAR-mo kek-uh-LIE-nin.

Anyways, good luck to him.

I really hope this franchise can somehow be turned around. It really isn't fun to see NHL franchises die a slow, painful death.

It's hard to ever imagine a Columbus team being succesful. But I would like to see him make it happen, out of pure sympathy for the few die hard Bluejacket fans

Hopefully he can turn around their drafting record and player development.

Good luck to him

Three first rounders to work with in a deep draft. Also, quite a few decent young prospects already there.

The pieces are in place. All he needs to do is be smart (i.e. - opposite of former GMs).

^^ Are you sure that's not the face he'll be making at this year's draft? :P

But anyway, mentioned this was a good possibility in the Howson firing thread yesterday, as TSN (more Bob MacKenzie actually) was right on top of it and singled him out as a top candidate. Looking at his resume in the draft at least it seems like this will be a definite improvement over Howson and they'll take the time to develop their players and improve this team.
