Just to clarify a bit - PR is page rank. What I think you're referring to is the connection between Page Rank and SERPS (search engine results pages). I hear the same from many SEO experts - that high PR doesn't relate to high SERPS. My thoughts are, if nothing else it sure doesn't hurt your SERPS.
What's the end result you're looking for? Mine is to maximize hits and conversions on my sites. Whatever leads prospects to my sites has to be relevant to the services I offer. From there, it's a matter of marketing content and calls to action, maximizing my conversion ratio.
