The last couple of years are evidence.

Burke wasn't some flawless deity in Anaheim. He made plenty of mistakes, Ducksgo. Yes, I'd say the good outweighed the bad in the long-term, but a Stanley Cup kind of does that, doesn't it? That being said, Burke wasn't able to just make things happen at the snap of his fingers, and some of his best moves were rather fortuitous. Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne come immediately to mind. Not to mention Pronger demanding a trade out of Edmonton, and Anaheim having the assets(assets gathered under Bryan Murray) to do something about it.
