But more on topic...I think Burke is very similar to Homer actually. He clearly overvalued his team when trading those picks for Kessel. He never thought they'd still be this bad.
Last year, Burke put too much faith in the goaltending, and it burned him but he improved it, this year, he put too much faith in his young centers. Both years, he's put far to much faith in Wilson
