Feaster sold the ownership on the idea that the Flames did not need a rebuild and with a few thoughtful moves he could turn them in to a contender without taking the team apart.
And that, to me, has been his biggest crime.
So, forget the stupid deals that brought inconsistent, butter soft players like Stempniak and Wideman, or bringing in and then resigning obvious busts like Comeau...forget that he went so far off the board in the draft that he wasted a valuable first pick on a kid no one had heard of and then sold it to the fans as "potentially the best player in the draft." Jesus! And forget that his window to maximize assets by moving Kipper and Iggy has now closed and by the trade deadline he will have to firesale these once great players...forget all those clown moves.
The big, big mistake was the ownership buying the Feaster BS that he could magically turn this team around without doing a full and proper rebuild.
And Calgary did have some major assets that clearly could have been turned into some high end youth so that the Flames would not have had to done an endless tanking routine.
And the Flame fathful will be paying for this con job for the next decade.
