I'd rather have Poile make a mistake by being active, rather than just standing pat and hoping for the best. He was proactive in getting the bad contract out so I can't really blame him in that situation. Going into that offseason, I was dreading the Lombardi contract. I thought we were stuck with it.
Keep in mind Toronto fans hated Lombardi while he was there. He was healthy scratch a few times too I believe. Getting rid of him was crucial IMO.
And you could see why Poile was so quick with the move, with Dumont and Sullivan's injuries.
