It is a fair question but I find people say Burke was unlucky with the Giguere trade or Komisarek signing (or in hindsight it was bad or didn't work out). And Burke was brilliant with the Lupul/Gardiner trade. But, how come he gets credit for the good trades/signings but its luck/hindsight for the bad trade/signings. I would rather measure Burke on the results and similarly.

Either he did well on Lupul and got the Giggy trade (or Komi/Lebda signing) wrong.
Or in hindsight he was lucky on Lupul trade and unlucky on the Giggy trade (or Komi/Lebda signing) .
