Should Burke be given one extra year to redeem himself?

No he absolutely should not be extended.
He has done a lot of damage to his reputation with his big mouth saying one thing and the exact opposite happening.
The only good thing he has done is luck out with contract dumps turning out well (Phaneuf & especially Lupul) but that has in turn handcuffed him at times. Meanwhile he missed out on some top talent by refusing to go long term like every other team in the league and making terrible signings like Connolly and Komi.
In any case, the team is objectively no better than it was when he took over.
Here is hoping that Burke contradicts himself once again and takes on Luongo's crazy contract.. or that Morgan Reilly is the next Brian Leetch because if not, it is going to be a lot of lean years to come.
