as for the topic......whats the Burke countdown at?
I'm in the minority, but I would be happy with Burke. His success's have come when taking over talented clubs (Ducks), and tweaking them into champions. His failures have come (Maple Leafs and Canucks) when needing to completely build from the bottom up.

I would actually argue Vancouver wasnt a failure persay, but they didnt win a Cup. Toronto is a failure today. Will see what that looks like in 2-3 years.

I would be very happy with Brian Burke running this years Washington Capitals. He would be the right guy to bring in after George. He's kind of he Anti-McPhee in GM'ing (risk taker vs risk averse)
