That's not because I'm some great prognosticator either, it's because I know what's really motivating the people involved here. Winning is extremely important, but there's something else going on that's equally important. It's about Lowe maintaining his control while staying out of the limelight, letting others take the criticism for him. It's about him having subservient employees that won't ever question him. Burke or any other veteran GM would never agree to work on those terms, partly why Lowe didn't even bother to consider anyone else for the job.
I said Burke would be hired. I still believe this.
