I'd take his trades with Anaheim with a grain of salt, which was why I didn't mention it earlier. Bob Murray, the current Ducks GM, was Burke's protege when Burke was in Anaheim. Their relationship after Burke left to Toronto was reminiscent of Fletcher's and Risbrough's back in the day. I don't know if he could pull the same level of sheer highway robbery on a GM that he didn't have a considerable level of influence over.

Still, Burke's a GM that knows how to utilize leverage to get the most out of his transactions, so that would be a significant upgrade on the current state of affairs.
