This. Business is business, but this is just good practice. It says a lot about somebody that stays true to thier word. It's good managment to reward someone's efforts and provide some incentive, even if it's a long shot. Good on Feaster.

And those who are upset, remember that Kolanos has been the leader in points for a while, yet our call-ups have been young, prospective NHLers from our home grown system. Feaster waited until Kolanos was consitently performing before giving him a shot at the big club.

How can you be mad at letting a guy play when you know he's going to play like there's no tomorow. This guy will play his heart out! I'm excited to see what he's got. It would make a good story to give this guy a NHL career if he can prove to be NHL calibre.
