I challenge someone to find more than 5 teams who have drafted better than us. Not gotten better players, but actually drafted better. Find the picks they had and who went after their guy.

Poile consistently has nailed 2nd rounder and later. Even the guys he gets crap for (like Finley) had no one better taken in the next 10 picks or so. You have to look at every pick int he context of what we had to work with and who was available. If Poile had 3 straight first overalls, we'd have some firepower too.

You can fault Poile on a lot of things, but drafting is not one of them.
