Sure, anything's possible. But after Nashville fans hear things such as Poile not even contacting a free agent because he assumes they don't want to play here, and then they call him and end up playing here...

It seems more likely to me that Sullivan or his agent pushed for three years figuring they could fall back to two if the money was right, and Poile, not always being the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to free agents, sort of gave up because he only wanted to pay for two and they asked for three.

I'm beginning to think Poile is reasonably smart, but has some autistic tendencies where he focuses on one thing to the exclusion of all others.
