Has MLSE changed its objectives and company directives when he was replaced by Burke?
Considering what Burke claimed coming onboard, I suspect he told MLSE that getting back to the playoffs would not take a 5 year rebuild.

He'd probably say that because of his age he was capable of doing it faster.

Apologizing the fans for failure kind of points in that direction, otherwise they'd have just claimed it was part of the plan.
