Afternoon Line

At some point, hopefully soon, a good friend of Jay Feaster will pull him aside, show him a calendar and make sure that Calgary’s GM has a firm grasp on the year in which he’s living and working.

Feaster’s dogged determination to wear Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff down to the wire for a team that has no real chance at the playoffs is enough to make you wonder.

So does his decision to acquire Brian McGrattan today from the Nashville Predators in exchange for minor league defenseman Joe Piskula.

-Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated where you can read more on the trade.

True, but not for the reason Muir cites. Acquiring a goon for a nobody and sending him to the minors is an irrelevant move, not an actively self-destructive one.

A dead-end, aging team like Calgary offer-sheeting another team’s player, instead of selling it’s own players for draft picks and prospects indicates to me Feaster thinks he’s living in 2004.
