I say give him his time, give him an extension, let the man stay and build the team he wants to build. It's going to take time. Everyone with a grain of sense should have known that it would be more than five years to turn that ship around.
but the 07-08 team, the team that burke took over and you feel was the sorriest excuse for an nhl team ever, was actually better than the most recent 11-12 teams under burke.

there's been no improvement under burke from the team he inhereted. in his 4 seasons since 07-08, 3 of those finished with less points, and one had just 2 points more than the sorriest team ever assembled.
