Marc Bergevin inherited a team near the bottom of the league and began his rebuild plan on utilizing the draft.

Burke inherited a team near the bottom of the league, and immediately traded away his next 2 X 1st round picks + more to fuel his rebuild, claiming "July 1st was his entry draft".

Bergevin took the patient approach of building through the entry draft, and Burke jumped in with both feet through trades and UFA signings to accelerate his rebuild based on lack of patience.

That is the major difference in team building philosophies between the two GMs in comparison here.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
