Some remarks by Feaster:

Quote:
@markhmasters: In statement, Feaster says after talking w/ Burke 'it became clear to us that [Colborne] is the type of young, big centre we need'
Quote:
@markhmasters: Feaster on Colborne: 'He fits in very well with our rebuild & provides size up the middle which we believe is critical going forward'
Furthermore:

Quote:
"As an organization we have had many discussions this past year about Joe, but never made an offer,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “With the opportunity to speak with Brian Burke and learn about Joe's hockey sense and character from someone who had him as a player and knows him so well, it became clear to us that this is the type of young, big centre we need. He fits in very well with our rebuild and provides size up the middle which we believe is critical going forward. The fact that he is from Calgary is an added bonus. We look forward to welcoming him to the Flames family."
