And if we compare timelines, we see the moment Calgary acknowledged their need for a rebuild (more vaguely than the Oilers did) was February 2013 - with the assertion that Iginla was on the trade market.
6 months and counting. Are the Flames going to be a bonafide playoff team in November of 2016?
It really depends what Burke can do. He got lucky (although you could argue one needs to be good to be lucky), by adding players like Gardiner, Lupul, and Phaneuf. I'm not a fan of the Kessel deal, but even I can't deny that he's been a good player for them. There are too many variables to project forward with a guy like Burke because you know he's going to be active.
