A misjudgement of that magnitude would be alarming to put it mildly.
I think it's more that Nonis and Burke have been discussing who to target for UFAs and trades. If Nonis becomes GM, then Nonis and Burke would probably be targeting the same players. For the draft, they have probably been working together to determine who to take. Who Burke likes is probably who Nonis likes.
