I think its just as ludicrous to act like poile has some aversion to top talent as it is to state that Im happy with us never winning a playoff series.


I always dislike the "do something" just for the sake of doing something mindset.

Yeah... some of the comments on HF (not just Nashville's boards) make it seem like any GM can just make a phone call, offer up anything, and land Parise, Ryan, Weber, Suter, Doughty, etc. If the league operated the way some people think it does trades would happen every single day, and great players would end up going between six teams every year...
