no, Poile "hits" in the draft about as often or better than any loing term GM has done, his "hits" are just heavily weighted toward defensemen and goaltenders.

We would be complaining a lot less about Poile if he had been allowed to sign Hartnell long term and Radulov hadnt been a headcase. Those two players would have likely made the last 6-7 years very different...
