Common man, lighten up a bit. I've not seen you get this worked up over a rumor before? What Flames news has this guy been wrong about in the past? I'm not familiar?

I have never seen him right.

I am also not worked up, just think he is an imbecile. I don't recall him being right about anything in the past.

Well, it seems like he has nailed this potential front office change well before anyone else. That's gotta boost his "imbecile" status in your eyes? No?

Shanaban will be good as he knows what it takes to win, whether it's a cheap shot or a goal

Murray Edwards knows he screwed up when he couldn't get John Davidson when there was a chance. Now Shanny is interested I don't see why not especially if we can get Ken King to JUST focus on the new arena deal.

@TSNJFranklin: I have been in contact with the #Flames organization and they are staying silent about their recent meeting... Not surprising at all.

People saw Shanahan in town meeting with Flames brass. Add in JD rumors from the offseason and voila. Not exactly hard to come up with this hypothesis.

Healy and Friedman on the Hotstove confirming Shanahan met with the Flames.

Friedman also stated the Flames offered all three of their picks to Colorado for the first overall but were rebuffed.

If we had the first overall, do we go for Jones or go for MacKinnon?

Mackinnon without question. There is no doubt in my mind that is who they are targeting.

bruce dowbiggin ‏@dowbboy 11s Look for announce. after the Final. Huge risk for flickering Flames after meltdowns past 4-5 years. Fate of Feaster/ Hartley now an issue.

Tough decision for me. But I think I would go with MacKinnon.

You'll learn quickly that mods abuse their power with hopes of taking over the world by directing all thoughts into topics less critical to the authority figures.

You asked the wrong question really. You should've asked why I took this thread into that direction?

Now he's just trying to stir the pot. Is he trying to say that Shanahan is a poor move?

For all those folks fantasizing about Feaster's demise, I doubt that very much. When does a team leave a lame duck GM as the teams spokesman just before they fire him? He is calling for meetings with the press. He is the voice of the Flames. What's more, what team in there right mind would let a man they were planning to fire, offer three first round picks in a trade? I would say these two facts alone demonstrate that the organization still stand behind Feaster.
