I know, but really, anyone who doubted this move haven't been paying attention. lol He didn't step on his crank with golf shoes on during last year's trial run... The only question was how long it was going to take the Burkes to make the announcement of him assuming the title of GM. But...

Realistically where do they go from here, if he has a run of bad luck, or the team goes in the toilet for a couple of years, it's not like they're likely to demote him, or fire him. So do we expect him to run the team until he gets tired of it? Do the boys take over ownership when Mom and Dad decide to retire. I don't dislike this move, I'm just interested to see what happens because of this in the future.

When I first read the news about a 'major announcement', I was thinking more: major trade, logo change, name change, etc.
I thought Joey Burke would eventually be named GM, if he effectively was not already. I for one am quite happy with the work he's done so far. Good work re-stocking the cupboard; the franchise appears headed in the right direction Akil Thomas looks to be a 'franchise player' in the making, and I can't find much to be unhappy about in the drafting of Philip Tomasino. For a team of 16-and-17 year olds to make the playoffs(despite getting smoked in four straight), it's all onward-and-upward.

The slam-dunks are easy. Top ranked and highly rated Akil Thomas was a choice anyone could have made (same for Tomasino). The true talent of a GM (in heavy concert with trusted and intuitive scouts) is obtaining top talent in later rounds (Castleman, Phillip) or picking up other people's cast-offs at a reasonable price (Maksimov, Brack).

Or, moving a 1st & 2nd round pick to another team and hope they don't turn into stars.

I felt he should have got more for Knott and probably would have at the trade deadline.

The deal for Maksimov so far is a steal.

Trading Paquette for all of those picks was highway robbery.

The trade for Brack to me was a nothing deal. Owen Sound wanted Cordell James. They were either going to release Brack or trade him for anything they could get for him to make room for James.

So far I would give him an A-. The minus is only because I think he should've got more for Knott. Other than that, I think he's done very well.

I do have the same fear as a lot of others, if he does crap the bed in the future.... will he be held accountable?
