If Poile is really one of the elite GM's that we always say he is, then surely he can also identify and acquire offensive talent that won't lead to a total collapse of the franchise.

you guys slay me... of course it isnt 100% sure that the moves would backfire, but it is almost 100% sure that several consecutive years of columbus-like hockey would likely kill this franchise

and the Blues have been a good team for what, two years after sucking ass for about 4? I know they had at least one top 5 pick which we havent had, well since legwand.... and the Kings were what, one point away from missing the playoffs all together and Lombardi getting fired instead of hoisting a Cup

Dallas hasnt done squat in years, and San Jose has done much the same as Poile, retool as you go without blowing things up.
