For better or for worse, I’d guess this is the final big piece of news out of the Jackets this summer. There may be other minor, Mike York-esque signings, but if I had to bet, I’d say that they’ve now got the roster they’ll be going into the season with. Will it be enough? We’ll find out.
Of course, Howson could always shock us and sign Mats Sundin tomorrow, but I would assume this is the final big piece of summer work.
