Former Lightning GM Jay Feaster Joins Flames


Jay Feaster, the former GM who put together the Lightning team that defeated the Calgary Flames in the Stanley Cup Final in 2004, has joined his former adversaries. The Flames announced Thursday that Feaster will join their team as an assistant to general manager Darryl Sutter.

Feaster, who left the Lightning after being nudged out by the Lightning's dumbass new ownership at the end of the 2008 season, will apparently act as an adviser to Sutter.

The Flames missed the playoffs for the first time since 2003 last season, and the best they've done so far in the off-season is re-signing former Flames. They are old, under-powered, and hard up against the salary cap. It's reasonable to assume that if the Flames do badly in the new season, Feaster may be there to take over.

 

But that's not something he's ready to admit.

"I'm not coming there to be the general manager of the Calgary Flames," Feaster told TSN.

The fact that Feaster won his Cup ring over the Flames is not mentioned in the Flames official news release, but apparently the fact is not forgotten by Sutter or his bosses. "He's an old enemy," TSN quotes Sutter as saying.

Feaster was responsible for several key additions to the Lightning leading up to their 2004 championship, including adding veterans such as Darryl Sydor, Cory Stillman and several others.
