I wasn't a fan of Burke's before we got him and I didn't want Clarke to trade for him either but to me he hasn't looked good. he hasn't been the entire problem though, the team in general looks bad especially the defense.

I would think that if he is this #1 goalie that everybody said he was, that he could steal one, just one, of the games in which the team played bad but he hasn't. I do think that he will play better when the team starts to get healthy and the defense tightens up but that doesn't mean that he is capable of taking us to the Cup.

I am sure that Phoenix played as bad as we are right now if not worse for longer period of time and he didn't have any problem putting up great numbers then. so what makes this situation any different?

I do not believe that Clarke traded for Burke for him to come in and backup Esche either. I think that Clarke had plans for Burke to come in a solidify himself as the starter but it hasn't happened...not even close.
