From my point of view, Brian Burke always was a great GM for a team which needs the last missing piece. The Ducks have been contenders and he brought the cup. But it was quite obvious that he did it by risking the immediate future. I'm glad Burke left and someone else took over - I'm one of the few around who is quite satisfied with Bob. Remember, the Ducks spent up to the max under Burke. He was able to make some moves, which, under current circumstances can't be made financially.
I wish him alle the best, btw. he is great handling the media, that's what I really miss in some ways.
