I don't doubt that. I wouldn't even be surprised if he took the reigns at some point. But if Burke doesn't understand that this is a process, then the flames are going to be right back where they started. People point to his tenure with the leafs, but it still took them a number of years just to make the playoffs. And they're not a lock this year by any stretch.
I think Burke is the right man to GM this team when they are a little further down the road. They need to sit back and collect good young talent for now, something they haven't had in a very long time.
