Burke has had to follow one of the worst GMs in leafs history, which decided the Leafs were still in win mode after the team was gutted during the lockout?

You know... The days when jiri tlusty was the leafs top prospect? When their best forward was Jason Blake?

Burke hasn't made the playoffs, sure... But the roster is becoming more and more respectable every year... The organizational depth from when JFJ was in is night and day - leafs have a great prospect pool to draw from now.

You probably don't remember when the leafs had an injury..l they called up John pohl... He couldn't even skate. That was our depth right there.

But yeah, use playoffs as your yard stick... It's still a marathon. A misstep here, a misstep there, but you fail to see the strides inbetween.
