What really qualifies you to "be a hockey guy?"

Yes, he didn't play competitive hockey, or coach a team... but the man worked for years in Hershey, was the GM of a Stanley Cup Championship team, and is now the GM of the Calgary Flames. He is surrounded by "great" hockey minds, and is studying the game.

Feaster knows his stuff, and is a very intelligent man. You don't have to play the game to understand it. (yes it helps, but its the be all, end all.)

Anyways, sorry for the rant... I just hear that from so many people, and think it's just a silly statement .
100% agreed. If he wasn't a 'hockey' guy, he wouldn't be a GM. I mean for ****s sake, he got Tampa Bay a cup and basically turned that team around.
