I think Burke will do well in Calgary. They need a rebuild and unlike the Oilers I doubt their strategy will be to come in the bottom 5 for years and years until they have a roster decent enough to win a few games. (Yes I am grumpy today =P )
The main reason why the Oilers fired Tambellini was because he didn't take risks. Tambo was too afraid to lose a trade, thus he did virtually nothing at the deadline.
MacTavish can be that "someone like Burke". He may be even better than Burke.
