Now part of that is the price, part of that is him trying to find the absolute perfect piece. While that isn't a bad thing, and this is conjecture on my part, I think he tries to hard to make the absolute PERFECT deal rather than settling for a good deal and taking some slightly more risky maneuvers. Again, this conjecture on my part based on the things I have heard from other people who are much closer to him than I am, including one of our professional scouts.
The "inside information" was what makes your initial comments credible. If you had referenced sources inside the Preds organization, I would have accepted your post without question. The premise being -- Poile says one thing publicly, but tends to hesitate and not completely follow through.
