This is the kind of hockey Burke wanted his team to play.

Must be so tough for him to be watching this right now.
Yes, but the irony is that Burke only has himself to blame for his mind numbing faith in Ron Wilson. Hell, I think the only reason why he actually fired him in the end is because the ACC faithful took matters into their own hands.

Burke did a tremendous job acquiring most of the pieces that constitute our current roster, and there are exciting prospects waiting in the wings. Unfortunately, his stubborn nature and sense of loyalty to a terrible coach that he didn't even hire ultimately led to his demise.

Carlyle has turned this team around with virtually the same assets at his disposal.
