On top of that, you have the issue of the relative cap costs and the unnecessary risk of making a change. Replacing a guy like Powe, who is cheap in the grand scheme of things, is silly given that he's effective at his job and the next guy may not be at no real cost gain.
So, 1) Powe is more effective at his job than those guys; and 2) he's cheaper than 'em.
