I do like the Erat trade (thank you Marty for asking for a trade) but this type of asset mgmt is something Poile should have been doing long ago. I do give Poile credit for getting what looks be a great prospect in return.
Let's see ... in the past five years he's added Wilson, Josi, Beck, Bourque, and Ellis to the roster through the draft ... packaged Lindback and Latta in trades ... brought in Fisher and Gaustad long term ... just acquired one of the top rated Euro forwards ... but he does nothing to make the team better for the long term.
