But I disagree with your assessment of Poile. I don't know him personally, but in interviews he comes across as an astute guy. He certainly has a solid reputation. And more relevantly ... I think he may have a point in this case. He won't accomplish anything tangible with voicing his displeasure with Sather publicly. Glen didn't break any rules. BUT ... Poile will certainly cast some aspersions on Sather's business-sense with this sort of comment.

[imaginary]What if ... after Lowe traded Comrie: Jay Feaster had publicly complained that he didn't get a kick at the cat, that he would have offered more than Clarke had? .... .... .... I think this board would have been on fire, and Lowe's competence and motives would have been called into question. And justifiably so IMO.[/imaginary]
