Let's look at his 1st round picks.
Brian Finley Pretty bad
Scottie Upshall - not so safe here
Ryan Parent - Not so safe
*Chet Pickard This is the worst of the bunch
4 out of 13 were straight bust, the book is still out on Blum, Ellis and Watson.
5 if you count Radulov. He was a known headcase. Poile took a chance it cost in the end.
So if only 6 of his 13 picks were good, is that good?
