I personally think it speaks volumes when a franchise tries to stay competitive even when its easier to simply lose.
That being said, Burke should have realized how thoroughly messed up the team was when he took the reigns from JFJ.
It does speak volumes and the message is.... we dont care if we ever win a cup as long as we are good enough to fill the seats. Edmonton did the same for years. Calgary is doing it now. It only leads to heartache. If you want to get good you have to suck first. In a salary cap world anyway.
