That aside, if it works out and they get to the WCF, more power to him. I don't think they have the experience or the firepower but anything can happen. His deals for Rinne, Legwand and Erat disgust me however. Rinne is an unproven goaltender in the playoffs and he flat out sucked against Detroit in that one series - he's not worth 7/49 no matter how you cut it.

You say to be fair, but then say that it all depends on this one year to decide whether or not he's a good GM?

Rinne is the best goalie in the NHL, maybe the length of his contract is one or two years too long, I have no issues with the dollars. Erat and Legwand you can argue are a little overpaid for their production, but it's pretty standard for guys like them in the NHL. In any event, if that's all you really have to criticize him on, then you're really have nothing...

Poile has done a very good job in Nashville considering he's always been limited to close to the cap floor.
