Keep Burke or not if it was your choice?

I'm completely fine with Burke being the GM as long as he has learned the lesson of not trying to "fast track," luckily, we still got a PPG player out of the trade.
Burke can only do so much. At one point or another there has to be accountability towards the players too. We had a good enough team to make the playoffs last year..at about 3/4 through the season, our chances of making the playoffs were well above 90%.
How can anyone blame Burke for the collapse last year? He did everything in his power to ice a team that can make the playoffs.
The only thing I don't like about Burke is the fact that he realized a year or two late that Ron Wilson is not a coach you can win the Cup with. His wins as a coach are because of longevity not because he is a great coach.
If we don't make the playoffs in the next 2 years (1 year if the lockout lasts the entire season) then he should be fired, otherwise, no.
