Could our new GM be Jay Feaster?

Kuklas Korner has a snippet of what may be coming in Colorado...

http://www.kuklaskorner.com/index.ph...dos_next_move/

Quote:
Colorado looks for GM ‘in-house’: A report in the Denver Post said fired Colorado Avalanche general manager François Giguère will be replaced by “one of several in-house candidates.” If that’s the case, you can bet team president Pierre Lacroix has already decided Patrick Roy will be behind the Colorado bench next season.
There’s more from Damian Cristodero at Lightning Strikes on Jay Feaster’s interest in the GM spot in Colorado:
Quote:
“He was my main mentor in hockey and we have been close through the years,” Feaster said Wednesday of Lacroix. “I have known Pierre Lacroix for a long time ... and certainly let him know of my interest in managing again in the National Hockey League and that I would truly enjoy working with him.”

I really like Feaster. I thought he got a raw deal in Tampa when the new owners came in, but he seems like a smart hockey mind. My opinion though...

It's looking like it.

I'd be shocked if it's not him at this point.

Roy, huh? Isn't it far more likely that Roy will probably find himself in Montreal? Plus, despite Roy's immediate success with the Remparts, things have not looked so good after that. I'd prefer to have proven Quinn than Roy, which doesn't seem likely at all.

Why? Patrick and Piere Lacroix are very close and I don't think any of the issues with his sons are as big of a deal out here in Colorado as they are in Quebec.

He's back in a playoff run this year fresh off of a seven game series win.

Yuck. Pat Quinn's work in Vancouver and Toronto does not excite me.

Well I was always under the impression that he was closer with Montreal than he was with Colorado. At least, Montreal's media likes to portray it that way. And considering who Quinn was working with in Toronto, I am a fan. Even in the last few seasons he was in Toronto, he managed to squeeze everything he could out of that plugish team.

Who knows, I'd love to see Roy behind the bench. It'd sure as hell be iconic, I just don't see him making the jump just yet.

I'd be content with a Feaster/Roy tandem as GM/Coach.

Someone that is not already in our organization, sounds good to me.

Feaster is a smart and classy man. You'll be lucky to have him in your organization.

Whether it's Feaster or someone else, any new GM would get a clean slate from me if they bring in a new coach. And only if.

I'd support that. He's done reasonable jobs with young teams.

Of course, a drunk gibbon ape with a concussion would be better than what we have now...

I'm not sure I would be happy with Roy as coach. I am still undecided if I think he may be clinically insane or not.

We may need some clinically insane right now...

I'm a big Laviolette fan, and I think his track record is impressive--he deserves a head coaching spot more than any other currently unemployed coach out there.

That being said, I don't want him here--it'd be a horrid fit. Lavi teaches run-and-gun and as Granato proved this team is simply not capable of that. Giguere deluded himself into thinking he put together an up-tempo style team, but it is CLEARLY not that. I'm not saying we need to be all trap-happy next season but an offensive-minded coach is not what we need right now, no matter how good he happens to be.

Because Granato couldn't coach them to play that way? I'm sorry but that proves nothing. Granato simply can't coach.

True but I just don't think this team is built in any way to do such a system. Not enough speed, not enough consistency, not good enough on the blueline, and CERTAINLY not good enough in goal for those times a run-and-gun team invariably leaves their goalie out to dry. Granato's a bad coach, but this is also a bad team.

I don't know about having a defensive oriented team with Cloutier and Brett Clark there. I would like to keep the puck out of the zone as much as possible.

you're right, we're nothing like a run and gun team. Even with Sakic and Stastny back, the squad's not offensive enough. I don't want Lavi anywhere near here.

That's funny....offensive is one of the few words I could use to describe this past season that won't get automatically filtered by HF's vulgarity checker.

Dater just wrote in his blog Feaster now contacted Craig Leipold for the Wild GM job. He just wants a job, but who doesn't these days.

Well that's true...bottom line is there isn't a system out there that this ragtag bunch presently constructed would succeed at.

Keep in mind even in a run-and-gun system, you still have to get the puck away from the opposition. And if you want to keep it out of the defensive zone, you have to keep it in theirs. Those are two of many tasks our defense stunk horribly at.

What about a J. Lemaire system ?

I've said elsewhere that while I wouldn't be entirely thrilled about hiring Lemaire (he strikes me like Dusty Baker in MLB of late, tired, just not that into it anymore) I think he'd be a good choice. I don't think his system is boring per se, it only seems boring because Risebrough failed to give him any sort of truly reliable scoring outside of Marian Gaborik.

Whoever the coach is, I think it's safe to assume they'll need to be the type to get the most out of the players. Aside from in goal, there won't be too many changes to this year's roster. Gone are the days where this team can rely on sheer talent to win games--at least for the next few seasons.
