Not really surprising, but I still feel this isn't as far fetched as people make it out to be and that if it does fail it's the end of the road for everyone from Lowe down.

It's not uncommon for people to hire their friends. John Davidson just did this in CBJ. Was there much of a hiring process there? Howson fired one day, next day Jarmo hired.

You also have Burke that got fired in Toronto, but then went back to his old team much like Howson did with us.

What we are doing isn't rare, it's how things go. The unfortunate part is that we don't have a mind like Davidson running the show.
