DECEMBER 5, 2018 -- Deb Placey sits down with the winningest general manager in NHL history, Nashville Predators general manager David Poile, in the third installment of NHL Executive Suite.
Poile discusses how he got his start in the business, his pursuit of the Stanley Cup, goaltender Pekka Rinne's contract extension, Nashville's blockbuster trade for defenseman P.K. Subban and staying in touch with hockey's generational changes. He also shares a compelling story about a letter that his father, 1947 Stanley Cup champion Bud Poile, sent to then-Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Conn Smythe from his post during World War II.
