Most everyone here says "Howard is ready" but I am telling you that on the radio interview with Ken Holland yesterday morning it certainly sounded like he was not ready to make that move... His words were "he is getting closer"
He alluded to the fact that bringing in someone else thru free agency would be good because it would setup "a situation of competition".
From the way it sounded to me, it aint gonna happen.
That being said, I like him and agree that he didn't get one lick of help the games he played here last year. He deserved better.
