Allow me to show you:

2008: 7th last
2009: 7th last
2010: 2nd last (wrong direction)
2011: 9th last
2012: 5th last (wrong direction)

As you can see the team is worse and has been on average worse than JFJ and FLetcher's teams.

This is the wrong direction..becoming a worse team.

This isnt debateable. This is just reality, as others have said before me.

The reality is, this team is worse than the team that was left for Burke.
That's an awfully myopic view on the structure of the team. While Burke has not moved the team in a positive direction on the scoreboard, he has been GM of the Leafs for a relatively short period of time. In that time he has significantly enhanced the teams future.

But if you are only going to talk standings, then yes, we haven't climbed up the charts you are absolutely right. That is however, just a wrong way to look at how to build a hockey club.
