Radulov is at 70+ player... even with a marginally skilled center like Legwand or Fisher. That's something we don't have.

It's OK if he's not the right fit, it's not OK to see another asset go down the drain.

We're on the cusp of being an elite team... we're also on the cusp of being a non-playoff team. We're at the point in Predator history where we see if Poile can do something he hasn't done in almsot 30 years-- take a team to the elite level. So far...

1) We've burned a lot of assets for marginal short-term rentals
2) A hugely valuable asset returned to North America. Over the course of 2 months, his value has been reduced to almost zero (with him leading our team in scoring). Being an hour late for cerfew is not something to sweep under the rug, but... now we got NOTHING.
3) Poile got nervous and took our team captain to arbitration, offering him a whopping $4.5m.
4) We stuck it out with Suter when we could've traded him for king's ransom last offseason. We'll see what happens from here.

Not looking good so far, David Poile.
