Sure he screwed up, but give him the 2 years to correct his mistakes.

If in 2 year the Leafs are not competitive he hasn't earned an extension.
If Burke gets well into his final year (2013-14), I bet he'll get an extension. Most teams in today's hockey world prefer not to have a lame-duck G.M.

However, the lockout could change that scenario. Everyone and his mother has been speculating that the Leafs have to make the playoffs for Burke to keep his job. But if there is no 12-13 season, MLSE has a decision to make -- either fire Burke, give him an extension, or, because it's an unusual circumstance, keep him on as a lame-duck G.M.
