Any Jay Feaster Sightings?

Mike Chen wondered about the Tampa Bay Lightning GM just yesterday, observing:

Since the Koules/Barrie superteam took over, nearly all of the press releases regarding player movement have been announced by one of them or new executive something-or-other Brian Lawton.

I’m not sure what Feaster is doing these days but there’s a good chance he’s collecting a nice check while sitting in an air-conditioned office watching reruns of The Surreal Life on Tivo rather than calling GMs and dealing with the league.

And Bruce Garrioch shares this theory at Off the Posts today:

The whisper amongst NHL executives is he has three years left on his contract, is on the verge of being fired and will likely get a buyout from the Bolts.

My opinion of Garrioch rumors notwithstanding, he might be onto something.  Feaster is a ghost these days.

Update 3:00pm ET: The new Lightning owners and Barry Melrose will be available for questions at an open town hall meeting next Tuesday.  No indication that Feaster will be attending.
