You're right though. His signings of Connolly, Armstrong and Komi didn't turn out as expected though, so he was an all-around awful GM.
Burke has provided the leafs with each and every player on our current roster, outside of McLaren and O'bryne. Yet the man get's shat on from near everyone, while Caryle (Burke's hire) and Nonis, are both credited entirely for the winning.
It may have benefitted this team to have Burke out, but he's totally responsible for the roster.
Kessel might be his poor trade, and as far as im concerned, he's actually still winning that trade for the time being. BUT he absolutely stole Phaneuf, Lupul, whom not only just so happen to be our leaders, but also our two best forwards at their positions. While Gardiner still is a fantastic prospect, whom was the obvious other steal in the Lupul deal.
