There's no way to judge Bergevin at the moment, he's basically an unknown. Burke is much easier to judge, in his career has done some great things (fancy moves to get both Sedins in Vancouver, solid moves to win a cup in Anaheim), though he has been more of a mixed bag in Toronto (the Kessel trade was a mistake, poor signings like Komi, Connolly and Army, but also some great moves like the Gards/Lupul trade and the Phaneuf trade). I'd say Burke is a decent GM, Bergevin could be anywhere from excellent to horrendous, only time will tell.
