I think most people acknowledge though that Burke did
good. But for whatever good he did do, how far ahead are the Leafs, really, from the day he was hired? They're still not a playoff team, they still don't have a goalie, and they still don't have a no. 1 centre; objectives no. 1, 2 and 3 from the day he was hired.
People love to say he "stocked the cupboards". Well, if after four losing seasons a GM hasn't at least accomplished that, then he could probably be considered the worst GM in league history, never mind just plain old bad.
you need only look the post above and below yours for 2 examples of either uneducated or blinded by hatred for the man to acknowledge anything positive.
it gets old quick
