The guy has done a good job since coming aboard. He's shifted the organization's priorities towards better scouting and development and a winning mentality, and he's shown a willingness to make deals when he has a goal in mind. He does not appear to be anything but realistic with where this team is, and he is perfectly willing to acknowledge the shortcomings of the product he put on the ice this year, and what he needs to do to fix it. There are far worse GM's in the league than Jay Feaster to be leading this 'retool' in my opinion. We've seen guys who won't make moves because they're afraid to make a bad one, and we've seen guys who make moves purely out of pride, afraid to admit they made a bad move in the past. Jay is neither of these.
Jay Feaster?
