Gotta thank you for continually quoting Mess there 67. I wouldn't get to read his posts otherwise.
When you keep a coach around for three years of embarrassing results, with division finishes of last, last, and second last, allowing the franchise to become the absolute laughing stock of not just the NHL, but pro sports in general, you assume responsibility for that coach.

Just because Burke didn't hire Wilson doesn't mean he is off the hook for letting him drive the "18 wheeler of a cliff".

Burke is a failure, and just like Wilson with his "500 wins" bull****, he is cherry picking his successes and dismissing his failures.

Frankly it is disgusting that that pair of conceited, ego maniacal blowhards was allowed to run this historic franchise for as long as they did.
