Linking to signings of Dumont, Arnott, etc will not convince me that Poile is a proactive GM. Both have publicly stated that Poile didn't contact them and they had to take the initiative. This is almost unheard of in pro sports, and a prime example of the Poile's passiveness. Atleast he returned their call I guess
The only decent point I've seen in favor of wanting losing to SJ/DET in the first round, is playoff money. But I have serious reservations if if a playoff game or two will have any impact what team is iced next year. In fact, I think it may make it worse. Because Poile & co will be some proud of what the team was able to accomplish (46%), and be so exicted for all the prospects coming through the system. There will be no need to make any moves.
Actually I do hope we playoffs for the remote chance that will win a playoffs round. Also, I'm setting my expectations low early on. But, I think our expectations have already been set after 4 years of first round exits.
