You seem to be holding Poile to an impossibly high standard. Yes, I concur he should be doing better with the forwards situation. But to call for his replacement because he hasn't gotten a miracle savior in the 6th round is completely absurd.
I only gave a couple examples-- there are more. It's not 'miraculous' to find offensive talent outside of the top 5 picks in a daft.

Great GMs find way to obtain offensive talent, the rest are David Poile. And, we should be holding him to a high standard.

However get well soon, Poile.
