A list of some of his moves, since taking over as flames gm:

.Trading a old beat up centre in Langow for a younger, cheaper stempniak.
.trading a lazy winger in bourque, a average prospect and a 2nd for a guy with passion, alot better offensive ability than bourque and a Goalie who is a average prospect but also posted the best numbers in the KHL.
. Signing Alex tanguay a 60-70 point guy to a cap friendy 3.5 mil.
. Signing a hard nose 25-30 goal scorer in Glencross to a cap friendly 2.55 mil.
.signing roman cervenka who has a ton of skill and COULD pay off huge for the flames.
. Drafting Sven Bartchi 13th overall and he MAY turn out to be the steal of the draft.
. Picking up Blair jones who is a solid bottom 9 guy who can kill penaltys for next to nothing.
.picking up akim Aliu, who is big,knows how to get under the other teams skin and has some offensive ability and should be a solid 3rd line guy for next to nothing
.drafting mark jankowski who was a huge risk, but from what some sports people like McGuire and mckenzie say he could pay off big time down the road.

And those are just some of the moves he has made. And looking and that list and sitting here thinking, I really can't think of a move feaster has made that was really bad except for maybe the wideman signing, who like I said would have gotten that money somewhere else, so featser just gave him the going price, which yes was too much but it is what it is. And for every one is says the flames didn't need wideman, they are wrong. The flames were almost last in points by D men so wideman will surely help that.
Even better for a guy who plays gritty and potted 26 goals last year in 67 games
Probably would have lead the Flames in goals last year if he wasn't hurt for 15 games
