If you think a Hartnell and a Radulov means he's great at drafting offensive talent and that we are just as good at drafting then well just have to disagree.

It's always an excuse for Poile.
You act like its all or nothing. I never said drafting Hartnell and Radulov would qualify Poile as great at drafting offensive talent, but had they both played as Preds through their prime you are delusional if you dont think we would have been a significantly better team... and if having those two had allowed us to reach a conference final or two I believe the assessment of Poiles ability would be considerably different at this point.
