No they didn't. We were picking at what, 15 that year? Radolov had top 5 talent but was available at 15 bec,ause of concerns about issues that might or might not turn out to be a problem. If you're a GM you have to weigh the risk of those concerns panning out vs the benefit of getting a top 5 player with the 15th pick. Poile took a calculated risk. In then end it didn't pay off, but the knock on poile around is is usually that he's too conservative who normally drafts sure fire pluggers over high risk high reward players.
