If I remember correctly Poile said he "thinks" Spaling has what it takes to eventually become a top six forward, not that he is one. Fans just ran with it as if he had demanded Trotz pencil Spaling in on the top six after overreacting to a simple statement made at the Skate of the Union (again, if I remember correctly). It's a fun joke and all, but acting like his exact words were "Nick Spaling is a top six forward in the NHL" is silly, especially considering he has never been used in that role outside of maybe filling in for injuries.
