obviously you cant say suter(and parise) were a result of "poile not being able to sell nashville" because if you accept that logic then Holland couldnt sell Detroit and shero couldnt sell Pittsburgh, which obviously isnt the case...
the only way to "sell" Nashville to a player who has a different preferred geographical destination is to massively overpay.
would kessel have signed here for 8 mil a year? maybe... but do we really want to do that?
a better option is to trade for players under contract(or RFA) and then let Nashville sell itself.... thats what he did with Fisher, and Sergei Kostitsyn... if he can do it with Ryan or Getzlaf, we will be in great shape.
if Ryan or Getzlaf get traded to a Western conf team for a package that we could have easily matched or beaten, then I'll blame Poile...
