Tonight during the worst thing I have ever watched, the NHL handed the GM of the Year award to Nashville’s David Poile. I’m not sure what else to say.
Everybody knows how I felt about his work last June. It’s reassuring that reckless behavior like trading Taylor Hall doesn’t get rewarded with a shiny trophy.
That being said, he deserves some credit. Cam Talbot and Patrick Maroon have probably been better than advertised, and I’m sure you can make the argument that McDavid didn’t do everything, but I digress.
Hopefully this doesn’t make Peter Chiarelli to do something bold in the hopes of getting a head start on next year’s trophy. He’s not that guy, right? He’s not going to trade Jordan Eberle to Las Vegas for Cody Eakin, right?!
