Scott Howson joins Edmonton Oilers as scout, much to dismay of Oiler fans

Of course, Oilers fans are not pleased.

According to Bob McKenzie, disgraced Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson has joined the Edmonton Oilers in a scouting role for at least the rest of the season. McKenzie reports that Howson will specifically be involved with the team's scouting of pro and college ranks.

Of course, Howson won't have any final word on running the team. It just looks like a sort of consultant role. However, the idea of the man who ran the Blue Jackets into the ground joining Edmonton has caused Oilers nation (which already has started to turn on current GM Steve Tambellini) to implode and hockey fans everywhere to break into mocking mode.

Just another day in the life of Oilers nation.
