I DON'T WANT a Burke-type, I want a Chiarelli type that can operate in the cap world and realise that sometimes taking one step back to take 2 forward in the best move(Kessel trade) and he keeps his players signed long term ahead of UFA(Savard).

Burke is a blowhard that has just continued the JFJ regime of poor cap and asset management.
Chiarelli lack of competent cap management made him lose Kobasew and Kessel. Their wingers are basically junk; Satan & Paille on 1st line. Handing out big contracts to Ryder, Lucic, Thomas, Krecji, Morris has put them in a world of hurt.

At least Burke is eager to make his team better and does not make the same mistakes over and over and over again.
