But those GMs did get those guys, and they deserve credit for it.
And they do. So why doesn't Poile get credit for our goalie tandem, a Norris trophy candidate, 2 other defensemen that currently make up our second pairing, Erat, Spaling, Tootoo, O'Reilly and Hornqvist?

How about the Columbus GM who selected Filatov ahead of Wilson. You think he's kicking himself?

And not to be nit picky but everyone passed on St. Louis. He was signed by Calgary as a free agent. He was never drafted at all.
