Jimmy says he is nearing the point where he'll begin looking for a job in Europe.
"In the next couple of weeks if nothing's settled, I'm going to have to hopefully find a job if something's open,'' Howard said. "I don't want to sit a whole year and not play, I would like to get into some games. Even though I enjoy being out there with the guys practicing (during informal skates), it's just not the same.'' Let's hope for Howard's sake that the NHL season gets rolling soon and it doesn't get to that.
