Wasn't comparing Edmonton/Calgary management groups, though if I was - I would say they are both terrible, and Feaster's scrambling to try to put together a team is in fact remarkably similar to the Oiler's pre-rebuild futility years. Lowe's success in 2006 isn't considered an excuse for the team being bad today, so why would Feaster's screw up with one of the primary aspects of his job in 2013 somehow be absolved by what he did under a different CBA nearly a decade ago? It doesn't, and the fact he's still around to make another move that could hurt the franchise is very telling of ownership group.
They are being run into the ground by a succession of bad GMs, and are about to lose the most popular player in franchise history over it.
