I think you all are getting confused ... he did show improvement from a shareholder perspective, the company went from a valuation of around $500 mil to over $1 billion. Their dividends have never been higher than under the Burke regime, it's only the on ice product that's still faltering. Yes there are playoff revenues they could have their eyes on but you pick a general manager (in any business) to improve operational efficiencies and increase the bottom line. In this area Burke has been an unquestionable success.
