The only thing that matters in life is results. This is especially true in the sports and business world.

The reality of the situation, hence where the term 'realists' derives, is that Brian Burke did not produce results. His winning percentage here as a general manager speaks for itself. He acknowledged as much in press conference after his firing and so did everyone else living in reality.

There is no spinning of this. This is a fact.

He left some nice pieces, yes. But so does every other general manager who does not produce results and gets fired. We only need to look as far as the recent example of Scott Howson, who left Columbus with some nice pieces. However, this does not change the fact that neither general manager produced results. So both were failures.

Nothing more needs to be said.
