We held on to him because Poile knew he could turn into something special. Why would he trade away an asset in which he sees big potential? Who really cares if we lost out on a 5th round pick? I'd much rather roll the dice on Peverley breaking out than give him away for a 5th or something. Your logic doesn't add up.

I don't get all bent out of shape when I see players do well in other places. I just view that as our scouting department doing a very good job. Sometimes players just don't fit. It's neither side's fault, it just happens.
