We shall see. I would be on board with your line of thinking re: this Burke hire if Tambellini were still here doing his never ending "assessment". But he's gone, and MacTavish is here in his place. He isn't perfect, but then nobody is.

Assuming that Burke inevitably does take over the GM reins in Calgary, IMO it's going to be fun to watch him and MacT try to out-bold each other.
