more, from interview with GMDP on 102.5:

-Bad season, doesn't want to dwell on it.
-Doesn't know who they're going to get at 4, but they do know they're going to get one of their four top rated players.
-Will talk to TB and FLA to see what it would take to move up, but at end of the day they're going to fine and get a "really good player"
-Doesn't hurt to listen to offers for picks, but realizes that best deals come on the draft floor. Thinks there may be an offer out there that would make him think long and hard.
-Thinks 4 or 5 players are in a class by themselves, not much separating those players. Cites Avs taking Mackinnon over Jones as proof.
-Confirmed that they are moving on from Blum and Halischuk. Cites the bad year and their lack of size as two determining factors. Don't want to come back with exactly the same lineup. Says he admits letting either go could end up a mistake, and he hopes so. Wishes them well in their careers.
-Poile thinks winning teams are a mixture of work ethic, skill, luck, health, experience
-Referred to the result in PHX as "a goof-up" and "devastating," getting beaten in the way they were.
-List of UFA Gs they will talk to on July 5. Could use a MKE goaltender if need be, but preference is a veteran.
