I gave poile two thumbs up for the trade deadline. he did great and he is not "in a cant win" situation when it comes to how I view him.

fact is no other team gave up a 1st for him.. even it was late. we overpayed and there is no question. I would just have liked to kept the 1st, thats all. I felt ak and gill were enough.. but as someone else said.. who knows, poile may strike gold with a 7th.. he is known for that kind of thing
Sorry, but I was a bit busy typing when you posted your reply giving Poile credit and felt letting my dog out to relieve himself before the game took priority over reading your post and editing mine or replying sooner.

Few teams were buying and we had the need for a player with Gaustad's skillset. Without the seconds this year or next, a first was the only way to get him. Poile got AK relatively cheap, paid too much for Gaustad .. in the end it all balanced out. Goose is our one center with size .. the one relatively consistent guy at the dot (he was 46% one game of late ... 80% another, usually around 60%).
