I've never seen a parse from a fire rk, but I would strongly bet wardens have the strongest overall bleeds/dots in the game. The best DoTs in this game does not equate to the best DPS however. A Great DPS warden will be better than an average hunter/burg/champ, and about even with a good one, but a great one of any of those classes will handily out-do a warden on dps. Also, while there are minor other differences, an RK going from healing to dps basically changes LIs and retraits (swaps armour bonuses too, i suppose). A tanking class swapping to dps and expecting to dps competently, must change every single item in their inventory, so it is a much more involved process.

Warden dps is further hampered by its lack of utility. In my opinion, recklessness offers a meaningful advantage in dps over assailment, but requires a target to have enough morale to last at least 30 seconds to fully realize this dps potential. Recklessness can be very good for dps, but is a bit clunky, and the nature of damage from assailment is still not ideal for low morale targets (though definitely better than recklessness).
tl;dr best DoTs =/= best dps.
