David Poile Reportedly Approached By Calgary Flames For Front Office Job

Quote:
The Flames interviewed NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan for the job that Burke officially took Thursday in Calgary, but the former Red Wings star turned it down, apparently wishing to remain in a larger city. Further, so did Nashville GM David Poile, who was also approached by the Flames ownership over the summer, the team evidently asking for and receiving permission to speak to the longtime Preds boss. He also wished to remain where he is.

Not huge news, but interesting nonetheless.

So what was the conversation?

Flames brass: Dave, we want you to be the Prez of the Flames.

Poile: BAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *coughs a couple of times*

Oh... You were serious

No, they're still all in a tizzy about Brian Burke getting the job in Calgary.

Exactly, they spoke to him...no word on if he really spoke back...probably just laughed.

And why would he? He's way past the major project stage (which the Flames are) of his career imo. And Farmer's Almanac says its gonna be a fierce winter
