In all honesty, this is weird timing.
1) It's a week before the trade deadline. Mgmt should be putting all focus on improving the team, not working out extensions for themselves. Couldn't this wait a week?
2) This really is a tell-all year for Poile if he's able to get a team to elite status (something he's never done). If he blows up the team with nothing to show for it and we take steps back, he should be fired.
I've never petitioned for a Poile firing. Sure, there are other GMs I like better, but he's solid. But if we lose guys like Weber and Suter for nothing, don't get the offensive help we need, and the team takes steps back, we will be out of playoffs for a while. I would have given him a one-year extension and see what he does over the next year.
