Daiid Poile will appear on the NHL Hour with Gary Bettman this afternoon at 5 p.m. CDT. I believe that this is the first time that Poile has been the Commissioner's a guest since Bettman's visit to Nashville last season when David Freeman was also a guest.
Here is the official release from the Predators and the NHL...
PREDATORS' PRESIDENT OF HOCKEY OPERATIONS/GENERAL MANAGER DAVID POILE IS TODAY’S GUEST ON “NHL HOUR WITH COMMISSIONER GARY BETTMAN”
NEW YORK (April 1, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile is today’s guest on NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman on NHL.com and SIRIUS XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET. NHL Live! radio host Bill Clement will co-host today’s show from New York.
Poile won his first game as an NHL general manager on October 6, 1982, when the Washington Capitals defeated the Rangers in New York. He entered an elite class on March 21, 2010, when the Predators defeated St. Louis for his 1,000th regular-season win. Nashville’s 94 points and 44 wins are the third-highest totals in franchise history and they are one of just three teams (along with San Jose and New Jersey) to record 40 wins in each of the last five seasons.
The Predators face the St. Louis Blues tonight at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman broadcasts live on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET on NHL Home Ice (XM Channel 204 and on SIRIUS Channel 208 as part of the “Best of XM” programming package) and NHL.com. The show will re-air on SIRIUS XM Radio, with archived shows available for download via podcast on NHL.com.
