I think we’re all disappointed that it turned out the way it did. It’s really unfortunate, but like anything in life, whether it’s your relationship with the Predators and hockey, or your personal relationships, sometimes things go wrong and you need to apologize, and I’m apologizing. Sometimes you need forgiveness and you need to move on, and that’s what we’re going to do today.”
Say what you will about some of his moves but Poile is pure class. He had nothing to do with the lockout and that's the best apology I've seen so far from any team/person/player/owner/GM/coach etc.
