    The man always looks like he slept on a park bench the night before.

    Calgary is already better, and will be better throughout their rebuild.

    Then maybe the Oil will tear down the true problem, and that is from Lowe down.

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    He talked about the Veterans being UFA this year and that Jay had done a good job of "Shoveling out the Barn", which could speed up the rebuild process some.

    He also alluded to getting a "Good, Young Player" so I would expect them to be active in trying to land a big name prospect.

    A random history of feaster

    Jay Feaster's tenure with the Flames: An abject failure - SBNation.com

    Not sure if this is good for us or bad for him

    Robyn Regehr

    Remember when Regehr had value? He's not very good anymore, but when Calgary traded him in 2011, he was viewed in many NHL circles as a top pairing shutdown defenseman. So what did Feaster get for him? Less than Buffalo got when it traded him two years later. The Flames were compensated with a second-round pick, a roster player in Chris Butler and a fringe prospect in Paul Byron. Butler at least made the team, but a bottom pairing defenseman isn't much return.

    No need. Neon Dion is a UFA and I bet you money that Burke's after him if he's not resigned by July 1.

    Great day for the Flames. You can't be a GM in a rebuild and ignore the incompetence of your scouting department while chasing after Brad Richards. It makes no sense. The sad day will be if the Flames hire Joe Niewendyk. Sure, he's a former player who has a history in the organization, but he's also a GM who fired Dave Tippett and hired Marc Crawford to replace him. Not exactly an upgrade from Feaster.

    Even after reading that gory roster/move list, it's still really hard to paint this all on Feaster. Not enough of a background on the meddling from the top...
