That's too bad, Bud Poile was a terrific hockey man. He and Keith Allen were the two main architects of the Philadelphia Flyers original 1967 expansion draft and he ran NHL teams after that too.

RIP.

jeezus...nothing bad meant by it at all. I had just recalled a story about him having Alzheimer's or something and was looking for a little more info as I just couldn't remember. Nobody is a bigger David Poile fan than I am.

My condolences to the Poile family on the sad news whether it was sudden or long coming....

RIP to a hockey great. Poile was responsible for both the Flyers and the Canucks.

My thoughts and prayers go out to David Poile and his family. He's a good guy and I'm sure his father was as well. Certainly a great loss for the hockey community.

Bud Poile joined the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1942-43. He led the Leafs in playoff scoring that spring. He left the Leafs in 1943-44 season to serve in World War II. As a member of the Flying Forts line along with Gaye Stewart and Gus Bodnar, Poile was an integral part of the Maple Leafs cup winning team in 1947.
The following season the whole Flying Forts line along with two defensemen were traded to the Chicago BlackHawks for Max Bentley (and a career minor leaguer).He was traded by the Hawks to the Red Wings 4 games into the 48-49 season. His stay in Detroit was short and he was traded to the Rangers for cash in the off season. The Rangers dealt him to Boston during the 49-50 season and he spent the rest of his career in the minors, most notably in Edmonton for 4 seasons. His career numbers were 311 GP, 107 goals, 122 assists and 8 penatly minutes.
Bud Poile's most noteworthy contributions to the game came off the ice. He began his coaching career in Tulsa as player/coach in 1950-51. He later joined Edmonton Flyers in a similar capacity, where he led the team to the Western League championship in 1954-55. He retired as a player that year. He was coach in Edmonton through the 1960-61 season, where he also served two seasons as General manager, before moving on to GM the San Francisco Seals in 1962-63.
He was the first General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers laying the foundation for the first expansion cup champions. His expansion draft for the Flyers landed them: Bernie Parent, Joe Watson, Ed Van Impe, and in 1969 drafted Bobby Clarke. He left to become the first GM of the Vancouver Canucks in 1970. In 1972-73 he became the Vice President of the WHA. He was the Commissioner of the Central Hockey League, then the #2 minor league, from 1976 to 1984. In 1983-84, he also became the Commissioner of the IHL. He held that spot until the 1988-89 season. The Poile Trophy for playoff MVP was instituted in 1989, the same year Poile won the Lester B Pearson award for contributions to hockey in the United States. In 1990 he was elected in the builder category to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
