The guys that Tallon "purged", namely Horton, Booth, Wideman are all solid NHL players, with Horton playing a significant role on a top team in the league (concussions aside which is neither the fault of Florida or Boston).

Burke moved out Stajan, Poni, Antropov, Hagman, Mayers, etc. Most of these guys are fringe NHLers who should have never been on any team, and many aren't on any teams anymore.

Your argument is actually counter productive because in this sense I would say Burke did a much better job than Tallon.
This is the point I was trying to make in my previous post where I posted the teams Tallon and Burke inherited. 14 of the 35 players on that roster do not play in the NHL anymore and with exception of 2 maybe 3 players the rest are barely holding on to their jobs and making peanuts.
