Probably, but Burke isn't a massive upgrade. If he was over anyone in the league don't you think some other team would've jumped on him by now? Why didn't Columbus hire him? Strange...
Komisarek signing was bad, but he was worth that contract when he was signed, his game just regressed with injury after Montreal.

Phaneuf trade? Win for the Leafs. Lupul/Gardiner trade? Win for the Leafs. JVR trade? Win for the Leafs. Kadri drafting? Win for the Leafs.

Making a big move to secure both the Sedins at the '99 draft? Huge move, impacts our division to this day. Drafting Kesler? Huge win for the Canucks. Those are the cornerstones of their franchise even to this day.

Drafted Bobby Ryan, Justin Schultz for the Ducks, fleeced Lowe for Pronger without giving up Perry or Getzlaf, etc. etc. etc.

Like him or not, he definitely wins more of his personnel decisions than he loses (no GM is 100%). And he has the balls to make a move, unlike our GM.
