You don't think Poile had control in the draft when other GMs were passing on Radulov because he was headcase?

I actually don't mind that he took a risk on Radulov, but he should hardly be congratulated on what might have hypothetical been in unicorn world. He took a risk on a headcase and it didn't pan out.

Harntell actually wanted to sign an extension with the Predators, the summer before the Liepold firesale. Poile per usual, dilly dallied in talks with his agent.

If we're stuck with Poile, we're going to be stuck as a franchise. The best thing he's done in the past 3 years was Martin Erat's idea.
