He won a Calder in the AHL while being named AHL Executive of the Year. Followed by a Stanley Cup while being named NHL Executive of the Year by The Sporting News. Guess he knows nothing about how winners are built? He may not have hand built each team, but he was right there when it happened and when they won..

Well Flames certainly isn't really bringing credibility for the present. Also wasn't the previous Tampa gm responsible for constructing most of the cup team? Certainly after that Tampa did pretty poorly until too and didn't make the playoffs till he was gone?


Feels sorta like asking Kris Kolanos on what it is like being an NHL player, he has played in the NHL but I'm not quite sure if he brings legitimacy to the conversation vs asking someone like Iggy.

Do you get what I'm saying or you just want to argue though? My point mainly is that he probably isn't he beat image of winning to me right now as opposed to say Peter Chiarelli.

Feaster was the assistant GM since 1998 he had a part in building the team not only that but he was the one that traded for Stillman who was the second leading scorer on the team. The team was gutted after the cup due to the salary cap and lack of funding from ownership. He is a credible source on how to be a GM and was part of building a great winner.

They also made the playoffs 4 consecutive years under him they only missed the playoffs once with Feaster they came dead last and resigned sighting issues with the new ownership "interfering" with hockey operations. You simply are wrong about him.

No way will every GM win every trade or make the right decisions 100% of the time. The only moves I haven't been crazy about with Feaster is the Regehr deal (he should of got a better return IMO) and the trade for PL3 and Modin were not needed. However, the last 2 transactions were pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but nonetheless were still useless deals for a team looking to stockpile picks/prospects.

I think the Flames are in a really similar situation to what Tampa was in before he was let go, and I think Feaster has learned from his mistakes there. I definitely think Feaster has moved this team in the right direction, yes it is still a long ways away from being a contender but I think we will all see what Feaster's real direction for this team is come October.

Regarding the OP, the book sounds like a really interesting read.

I didn't say I think he is a bad gm, but I certainly doo not believe he is the best one to be the keynote speaker on his book.

All "top" GM's are still employed I doubt they had time and or are allowed to talk about behind the scene things which makes Feaster a good person to talk especially since he is well spoken.

Thats great but to mock a book that has a GM who has one a cup and been in the business for over 10+ years and has been praised every where he has gone is not right.

Wasn't mocking him really, I just said I'm not sure if he brings that much credibility to the book. More like me questioning if that was a bonus or not to have him as a keynote speaker.

Feaster has won a Cup, his stories and experiences add credibility to the book, period.

I guess mocking was the wrong word but there aren't that many GM's that have won a cup in the last 20 years or GM's that have 10+ years of experience that fact that he has both and has been recently hired to fix a team that most people think is in the worst shape should bring alot of credibility. As I said earlier most GM's that people think of when they think of successful GM's are either still employed and most likely to busy to do the book or haven't been a top GM in a while which makes them being in the book less helpful.

I really don't understand how anyone can judge Feaster after 2 years.

Agree completely. I think this off-season is where we will begin to truly see him make this his team.

If it weren't for Feaster in Tampa, Calgary would have won the cup in '04.

Pitches and torches on the 5th? Sound good.
