Every GM has their missteps now and again. To borrow from another in-division example, witness Ken Holland's inexplicable mancrush on Todd Bertuzzi. That doesn't necessarily make them bad, or trending downward, tho.
I agree with this too- very much. Poile has done a great job to this point with only two or three errors.
