The Nashville Predators’ mad dash to the finish, which resulted in a fourth consecutive playoff berth, has made general manager David Poile the leading candidate — in the eyes of many — for Executive of the Year, and understandably so.
Keep in mind, though, the team that Poile cobbled together this season is not the one he wanted. The uncertainty and financial restrictions that preceded the sale of the franchise forced his hand with regard to players such as Scott Hartnell, Kimmo Timonen and Tomas Vokoun, all of whom were traded, as well as Paul Kariya and Peter Forsberg, free agents who walked with no effort having been made to re-sign them.
