I guess we'd just better forget entirely about Jeff Carter helping out up here.


Seriously. "We know Poile just would've used..."? Spare me. There's trends you suspect, and then there's actual knowledge. You have the former and you are presenting it as the latter. You therefore fail.
To be fair, it was later revealed that Leipold directed Poile to make that move as a "last ditch" attempt to save his investment in Nashville. I'm not sure if Poile pulls that move off without some fire under his butt.
