The team Burke took over had higher rated prospects according to HF and the professional nhl scouts that make THN rankings.
All after 4 bottom ten finishes.

The ONLY positive spin you can put on this disgrace of the team is the claim that, while the team doesn't score more goals, our current star players put up more points than our star players from four years ago.
Is that really good enough after four years of bottom 10 finishes?

I just don't understand...
This really is all that needs to be said to arrive at the conclusion that Burke has been a failure so far for this franchise.

Its a clean summary that presents all the facts.

Does Burke need another year...well he hasn't been fired so far so it looks safe to say that we are in for at least another season of him to see if he can for the first time in years actually improve the team.

He has another year. If he fails again, its just another nail in his coffin.

He made his bed here in Toronto. He has to sleep in it inevitably.
