Feaster Delivers The State Of The Flames

from Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald,

“We have to change the nature of the discussion here. The discussion shouldn’t be, `can we assemble a team that’s good enough to be eighth or maybe in a good year get into seventh spot, and then anything can happen.’

“That isn’t what this organization aspires to be. It isn’t good enough.”

Feaster refused to comment on the future of head coach Brent Sutter, who is without a contract for next season, captain Jarome Iginla, goalie Miikka Kiprusoff or any other individual.

“I will be sitting down with (team president ) Ken King and ownership, and I will be reviewing every player in the organization and every member of the hockey operations staff,” Feaster said. “And I’ll be making recommendations as it relates to players, staff and coaches.

“We’ve missed the playoffs for three straight years. It’s clear we have to make changes. We’re going to have to do a number of things this off-season because this is not a situation I want to be in next year. I’ll tell you that right now. I have no interest in standing here on April 10th next year and explaining why it is we’ve missed the playoffs.”

Did Feaster and Burke read the same book?
