Should Burke be given one extra year to redeem himself?

If you want immediate success than accept that he'll need to go after a vet goalie (and possibly other vets at the expense of youth) and you'll then be sacrificing picks.
I want results from the accelerated rebuild. In other words winning. Start by making the playoffs. I don't give a **** how its done just ****ing win. I dont care who is in charge, just get the results.
And if playoffs are out of reach (which they seemingly are), then I want the Nugent Hopkins of the world, the Seth Jones, whatever.
You know...meaningful results.
Toronto has done neither under Burke. He's been an utter failure in icing a playoff team and that looks like it isnt changing anytime soon and hes shown no urgency in finding rare prospects to make the playoffs down the road. He has drafted Rielly but thats only because he really screwed up.
His time is running out to get results.
We should not reward Burke for failure. THis is the sports industry. Failure should never be rewarded.
