The fact that more oiler fans are praising this than flame fans is both puzzling and amusing.
I'm not saying that Burke is without faults but he's a good GM. Again, i don't know if it's the right time for the Flames to bring in a guy like Burke considering where they are in the rebuild process but he has shown the ability to build from very little to contender.
Maybe Oiler fans are praising him because he's better than any GM that we've had since Slats.
