For sure 2 of them have been in their positions longer than Burke.

It also depends how you define success. I believe that at the end
of a season, there is only one winner. The current GM of that winner
had 2 1st round exits, and 3 out of playoffs seasons, in the past
5 seasons.

Glen Sather in his 13 years at NYR, has only gotten past the 1st
round twice.

If you want to count 4 years as a benchmark, Ken Holland hasn't
won in 4 years now either.

Steve Tambellini has Hall, Yakupov, RNH and Schultz to show for his time in Edm. Burke's biggest trade is a rather questionable one IMO, drafting has been good, but if he wanted to go that route the 2 1s and 2nd should never have been traded. The man is disorganized, and his plans seem to change on a daily basis.
