Also something everyone around here seems to assume is that he will be the GM. Feaster is still the captain of this ship, and no matter how good his commanding officer might be, feaster is still the one driving the boat into a sea of icebergs.
The Leafs were an even bigger mess before he took over. They now have a solid base with mainly his players.
The Canucks core that became a cup contender is made up of a lot of his players.
He brought the Ducks from playoff contender to cup champion.
Feaster will be a lame duck if Burke is brought in in another capacity similar to Tambo when MacT was brought back.
I don't know if he's the perfect fit for a rebuilding team like the Flames but the guy has a very successful resume and i think it's kind of odd that some of you talk about the Oilers finishing ahead of the Flames for years to come when the Oilers having accomplished anything and hired a GM with no experience whatsoever.
