Not that this rumor has any chance of occurring, but Feaster did not resign from Tampa in as much as he was urged to leave the building. He was trying to save his job with the new ownership group, even throwing Tortorella under the bus there at the end. So just to clarify Feaster certainly didn't leave Tampa due to Lecavalier's contract (he even re-interviewed for the GM position once Vinik took over as owner). However, yes, Vinny does love Tampa, and he isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
