We should hold him accountable, but give him the 6 years he signed for, and then if he's succeeded in moving the team into the entry level of being a contender with a great future give him an extension.
So acquiring Phaneuf, Kessel, Gardiner, Lupul, Colborne, Ashton, JVR, #22 & #25 2011, is not a step forward. That is 9 1st or former 1st round picks he has acquired in the 3.5 years he has had to work with. That doesn't include Sjostrom, Komisarek, Connolly or Kadri and Rielly.

We should be comparing Burke to the best GM's in the game, MLSE didn't sign him to be just another GM.

Well Ken Holland(isn't he the best?) says it takes 10yrs to see results so why not sit back, quit *****ing, and let the man do his job for at least a few more years.
