Jay gives his brief explanation on this embarrassing scenario

Yikes.... Not trying to piss anyone off here, but that's pretty bush league.

Being a resident here in Cowtown, I'd love to see ownership drop the axe here and make a move for Burke, really can't be any worse than Feaster

With what he's done with the scouting department, and the FA signings, I'd still keep him. However, I might debate bringing in a new assistant with experience, like Burke.

The degree to which this organization takes its fans for granted is appalling. They're convinced we are idiots. And we probably are the way we get suckered in to watching the team and buying merchandise (i know I am atleast).

Yes, not just because of the O'Reilly fiasco, but also because his biggest blunder is the one he has yet to make. Feaster has been adamant that there will be no rebuild under his watch, and Jarome Iginla will not be traded. Yet there has been no mention whatsoever of a contract extension.

They do realize that Iginla is set to be a UFA on July 5th right? He could conceivably walk for nothing.

Feaster is now the laughing stock of the league. He should resign on his own. Can you imagine the deals that other gms will propose to him now?

You guys literally just dodged a bullet.
If Sherman was inclined, he could've set your franchise back multiple years. Feaster has GOT to go, looks like a lot of you guys realize it too, which is good to see.

I agree. That would have been the biggest blunder in NHL history. Chances are the 1st is going to be top 10, if not top 5. I don't know how anyone could defend him now. Terrible management and the optics of it look terrible. He'll never recover now. He'll forever be linked to this as long as he's in CGY.

I have been relatively happy with Feaster until this waiver thing...he lacks the same attention to detail that the rest of the team does, and he must pay for it.

I should add that Feaster has little to no input on the rebuild idea, in that regard he is the ownership's "yes man"

I would like to see Hextall get a shot, I am not sold on Burke.

Seems like a pretty large mistake, even if it didn't bite him in the arse. You have to think that Sherman made the same mistake though wouldn't you? Sherman equally should have known the rules and ended up paying his player more than he wanted to and giving up an opportunity to maximize his value for ROR by getting the Flames 1rst, 3rd and likely more from Columbus.

So yes, Feaster screwed up and should be given the heave ho but really, shouldn't Sherman too?

How? He probably did know the rule but that had ZERO effect on his decision. You think he didn't know and if he had known he would have decided to walk away just so he and the rest of the NHL could have a laugh? You have got to be joking . Feaster is that you?

Yup. Way too big of a **** up. It can't be overlooked. He has to go.

But I do not want Burke. I would like someone to come in and rebuild this club starting with Iggy to the Pens and Kipper to a potential contender. They both deserve a cup.

How it doesn't benefit him at all to let ROR hit the waiver wire they aren't last.

I don't know if I agree with your assessment about Zero impact. Here's why. under the initial understanding:

ROR for Calgary's 1rst & 3rd (historically 15-18 in the draft per round)

Worth it for the Av's? Not really. But ROR is signed at a couple of million more than we would like and we have to qualify him at 6.5 million and we can't trade him for a year, and there is all that stuff with his father etc...

Still player # 15-18 & player # 75-78 in 2013 draft. No, better match.

OR

Lose ROR
Not have to pay 6.5 million or qualify at 6.5 or potentially go through this again next year...

Colorado gets # 15-18 and 75-78 in draft and whatever else they can milk out of Columbus to convince Colorado to not match. Maybe Ryan Johansen and a 1rst or 2nd?? And you get to screw a division rival who just drove up the price on your RFA to 6.5 million.

Agreed Ken King and the boys need to be held accountable for the buffoonery.

No way.

Burke is (And I never thought I'd say this) an interesting candidate and would probably do well in this town if he's left alone to do his job. But that's another thread.

This is probably one reason why they don't go into a rebuild - they think the fans won't understand and go away until the team starts winning again. I think that of all the NHL hockey markets Calgary would be among the top five where a rebuild would be embraced and celebrated. Nobody wants to watch a losing team but if there are some top picks playing and growing and a good group of veterans to guide them it could wind up being something pretty interesting.
