Nonis helped build that foundation though, he was here for as long as Burke was.
I enjoyed reading this though. I flipped out when Burke was fired because it was so confusing with the timing and everything, and it seemed like ownership was trying to do their meddling. It may still be like that, but by all accounts Nonis seems easier to work with so maybe that's just it. After having calmed down, I can see that Nonis is a smart guy and might just be what this franchise needs, a GM who isn't trigger-happy on trading away future assets for short term gains.
