Fire Feaster?

Yes or no?

He hasn't made a terrible deal yet, but he has failed to improve the club in any meaningful way. He almost gave away a potential top 10 pick for literally nothing yesterday. The Avs didn't match so he dodged a bullet, but does that forgive the oversight?

BTW, if COL didn't match and CGY got ROR, CGY would've been obligated to put him on waivers. No provision for paying him not to play.
So yeah, we were guaranteed to lose him on waivers.

He lucked out here big time but honestly I'm worried about his potential to **** things up harder next time around. Better safe than sorry. Fire him.

Based on the whole waiver thing, yeah, he has to fired. How on earth could the organization miss that? They really are that stupid.

At this point I would be a lot more comfortable with Burke than Feaster.

The flames were in trouble before he arrived. Some of his trades have been suspect yes but the team he was left with wasnt exactly brimming with trade assets same as now.

I don't mean to intrude, but the Flames would not have lost O'Reilly to waivers, because the rules were changed in the CBA.

Per Bill Daly:
"No, he would not be subject to waivers. He would have been under last year's rules, but that was changed in collective bargaining."

This has been discussed and debunked in the main O'Reilly thread. He would have been exposed. It's been reported and verified in triplicate.

I believe that concerns the Avs being forced to put him on waivers. The Flames still would've.

Yes fire him and bring in Burke, he dodged a bullet but clearly he isn't prepared to be a GM.

Ahh, got ya. Haven't seen all the reports, I just figured that Billy Daly should know, since he had a major hand in putting together the new CBA.

I could probably have a copy of the CBA in front of me and not be able to understand it anyway.

Best of luck to you guys.

If this O'Reilly on waivers thing proves to be true, this is just inexcusable. This is the sort of thing someone should lose their job over, if this had gone the other way this team would have been set back 5 years, maybe longer. That can have giant implications spanning the life of a franchise.

Nothing against the guy personally, but to make a mistake like that...its time to go.

This blunder brings Feaster (and Sherman as well to be fair) down to levels of Milbury, Snow, K-Lown incompetence.

On the other hand it seems like no one in the league knew about it either. I don't have the link but O'Reilly's agent is saying on Twitter he didn't even know about the rule, and there were other teams trying to offer sheet him as well.

It's way worse than that. When those GM's made moves, they at least got something back. The Flames would have been left with nothing.

It's the GM's job to know the ramifications of his actions. If Feaster had any integrity, he'd step down in the coming weeks.

It's tough because Feaster is much better than Sutter. While I appreciate a lot of Feaster's moves, this one is inexcusable. Poor guy has no margin for error unfortunately. I voted no because the devil you know is better than the devil you don't

I agree I have been a big supporter of Feaster but this is a mistake that can't go unpunished, if a coach ****s up and we miss the playoffs they get fired well the GM ****ed up time to let him go.

Outsider here, but I had to weigh in. If I'm an owner, and this is the guy I trust to run my team, how do I trust him after he almost gave away a 1st round pick and 3rd round pick and lost the player he was going for?! It's like a couple summers back when Dale Tallon screwed up the Qualifying Offers for the Blackhawks, meaning they had to overpay a handful of guys. He was let go shortly thereafter, and the team said the QOs didn't factor into it, but, of course, they did. You've got to be able to trust the guy running the team. I don't think you can trust Feaster now.

I've been a big Feaster supporter until today. If this would have gone down, and we lost our 1st, 3rd, and O'Reilly for nothing, it would have crippled this franchise for quite sometime. That would be two MAJOR trades gone bad in a short period of time (Phaneuf). (and yes, I know that wasn't Feaster.)

I wouldn't mind going after Burke, Hextall, etc. and finally announcing a rebuild. The last few days have been really dark.

More like hours haha. Riding high leading Avs 3-0 then the rug gets pulled out from under us. The following days should be very interesting indeed.

I was in favour of Feaster AND the ROR signing until this came up. This is inexcusable, I think it's time to fire him; I can't trust him anymore with this team.

I said Yes but not just for this latest situation (It's serious regardless of whether or not the signing actually went through). As I've stated on another board, Uncle Feaster is obviously out of touch with where his team is and where it can go from here. He also seems philosophically opposed to what has to happen next (A full Monty rebuild).

Yes. I was willing to give him more time but after I saw what he did yesterday he should go. It's like he doesn't know how to run a hockey team. Imo, he'll never win another cup. The only reason why he got the first one is cause we got ****ed over.
