Yes, Burke came in to the league and played well in an era where GAA was the key stat and not necessarily Save Percentage. I'll acknowledge your point on that issue.

That being said... He was not considered an elite goalie when Phoenix picked him up. He was average. Viewed as a goalie who never reached his full potential. Can we agree on that?
