We were never in a situation we had to re-build. When Murray took over he had two 23 year olds in Getzlaf & Perry under contract for 5 years and two hall of fame defensemen to work with (say what you will about their ages but those are two quality assets as we saw when Pronger was dealt). The only criticism I have of Burke is the poor 06 and 07 drafts and the McDonald move. Other than that he left Murray in a pretty good situation although most will disagree even if at the time most still looked at Burke in a favorable light.
