Joking aside, very patient, avoids big roster moves, builds through the draft with moderate drafting success, good at re-signing players to reasonable contracts.
I'd say he's the pollar opposite of a Paul Holmgren for example.
Holmgren is a GM with ADHD. He can't NOT do anything. He's always turning over his roster, trying to sign players, trades players he just signed, acquires guys' rights (Hartnell, Hamhuis, Bryzgalov, etc).... Holmgren is a very proactive GM who's constantly trying to piece together moving parts.
Nonis is a lot more calm, slow, methodical. For the most part Nonis lies in the weeds, and just waits. Every GM will make a splash occasionally but Nonis is the type to do it very rarely. He's timid. Not saying this is necessarily a bad thing (sometimes the best trade you make is the one you don't) but Nonis is definitely a more cautious GM.
