Yeah because having the balls to make that move to grab both of the Sedins hasn't had a long term impact for that team to the west of us. Or drafting that Kesler guy.

Or hey, didn't he draft Bobby Ryan and Justin Schultz and Jake Gardiner too?

That Nazem Kadri is a bust too.

The Kessel deal is the only really "bad" move he's made and it's not like Kessel is garbage.

Burke is a better GM than anyone the Oilers have had since Sather. Period. He wins the vast majority of the trades he's involved in too. JVR deal = win. Phaneuf deal = win. Lupul/Gardiner deal = win.
