Arnott has publicly said that we didn't go to him; his agent had to go to us.

Agree with your post Enoch. You said it right-- Poile has no creativity when it comes to trading and asset management.

I honestly think Forsberg was all Leipold... One last shot before selling the team. But acquring UFA rentals takes no creativity. Best offer wins, and Poile gave up a huge price for both Witt and Forsberg.

Of the top of my head, Poile has only traded 2 roster players in his 11 years as GM (where a UFA rental wasn't involved). Scott Walker and Mike Dunham. The Dunham thing was the only semi-creative trade he has ever pulled off as GM of the Predators (and it turned out pretty good).

The Jokinen situation reminds me of Thornton a few years ago.
