Exactly.

If we don't sign our guy -- We cannot make him sign. He changed his mind.

If we cannot land a FA -- He was overpriced. Better players out there. He wasn't going to come here anyway.

If someone else gets traded -- We never had a chance. We couldn't offer that exact deal. Cost too much. Our players are better!

Basically Poile has never screwed up. He doesn't sign or bring in guys, we were good enough anyway. Team loses in the second round? The players were good but screwed up.

Then at last, every bold move comes back with: Do you want to end up like Atlanta or Columbus or Edmonton?
