Yes he has made some odd moves, but Homer has probably made way more. If we are to fire Homer, I would definitely give Burke a chance to restructure the issues here. At least he is able to find good young goalies and build from the net out. Id love to have a GM that brought in good young D, or developed them through the draft.
All I can say is, ever since Burke was fired by the Leafs it has been so much more tolerable here in Toronto as a hockey fan. The guy has to be in the forefront of EVERYTHING and stifles the team. He is also extremely negative and picks fights with people. I don't want him anywhere near the Flyers.
