We did have one, but he went to Russia. And let's not write off Wilson or Smith just yet. In another system, some of the guys Poile picked may have developed more scoring ability. Trotz requires his players to be defensively responsible or they don't see ice time early in their careers. Don't blame this all on Poile. It's a system that values an all around style of play at the expense of risk taking, creative offense. The system, the Predator Way we hear so much about isn't conducive to developing snipers.
