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.
The one thing Burke could do well without impacting the team in any sort of negative fashion is going to the NCAA/Europe. Burke has been pretty good about getting guys to sign in Toronto.
