I suspect Poile will be a lot more cautious when it comes to guys with perceived attitude problems at the draft.
I can think of one in the Winnipeg system that would be a GREAT fit in Nashville right now. Ivan Telegin's the real deal and would excel in Nashville's system.

I don't think you ever want to say "We'll never draft players from ______ because of _______. " What if we said "We'll never draft players from Ontario because of Eric Lindros" or "We'll never draft players from Quebec because of Alexandre Daigle." For each Alex Radulov, there's an Alex Burmistrov. For every Alexandre daigle, there's a PJ Subban
