How about the Columbus GM who selected Filatov ahead of Wilson. You think he's kicking himself?
I see everyone giving him credit for drafting well w/ defensemen and goalies.
Here we go with the Colubmus stuff again. Yes, Columbus sucks and we've done better than them!
Getting Erat and O'Reilly in the draft was "pretty good" but getting Zetterberg and Datsuk, or Eriksson and Neal, was better.
I'll stand by my statement-- Poile has been 'pretty good' at the draft.
I do think he's very hesitant to give up assets. The Forsberg trade has Leipold written all over it. But even still, take the two exceptions of Forsberg and Witt when he gave up significant assets-- they were not good trades.
