When you evaluate a GM a couple yrs or so after he's taken over, you have to ask if the team is better now than it was before OR if it's in a better position for the future now than it was before.

You can't say yes to either of these statements. They're still not a team good enough to go deep in the playoffs and their prospect pool hasn't improved significantly.

Even Brian Burke has managed to turn Toronto into one of the deeper prospect pools (although they don't really have a high end prospect other than Rielly now that Kadri is looking like 2nd line C at max). So at least the future in Toronto looks a bit better than it did before.

Feaster has just kept it status quo and their status was bubble team so he's failed so far.

Oh and drafting Jankowski can't qualify as a good move now. Mayhbe in the future but you draft those project-type prospects if you have a deep team/pool or in the 2nd round but Cgy needed more of a sure-fire prospect than another potential bust.
