Feaster On The Delayed Clock Issue In Los Angeles

STATEMENT FROM FLAMES GENERAL MANAGER JAY FEASTER ON THE GAME CLOCK DELAY IN LOS ANGELES

Thursday, February 2, 2012  “It is our understanding the NHL is already investigating this matter. Moreover, as Colin Campbell was quoted as saying, once the game is over it is over. There is nothing the NHL is going to do, or can do, to correct the situation if, indeed, there was a mistake made in that game.  Rather than crying over what happened in a game in which we did not take part, our time and energies are devoted to our own team and doing everything we can to win the games we play and in so doing qualify for the post-season. We sincerely believe that is a much better and more efficient use of our time and effort.”

Jay Feaster
Calgary Flames General Manager

Is there a reason he felt the need to put out a statement?

awould, the only reason I can think of is they are fighting for a playoff spot and the extra point the Kings gained just may hurt the Flames as the season progresses.

Possibly because he was receiving a ton of inquiries from reporters looking for a statement. I’m guessing media folk were actively petitioning a ton of GMs, asking for a statement.

Both good reasons that I thought of about 5 seconds after hitting “Submit”.

A clock malfunction is a terrible way to decide a game. Go Blue!

What the hell?

Is it that slow a news day that there are 43849083204 stories on this and uninvolved parties releasing statements on it?

Shouldn’t Feaster be off huddled in a room trying to figure out how he’s going to stop the suckage, not releasing stupid statements on moronic incidents in games his team didn’t participate in?

You are correct.  It’s much better to decide it by just beating the crap out of a team 4 times in a row.  GO GREEN!

Considering how big and damning this issue is, I’d like to see a statement from all 30 general managers about it.

I agree, JJ. It’s bad enough the officials color games far too often. We can’t have clocks showing preference - intentionally or otherwise. This is one of the only aspects of the game that we trust will be perfectly objective.
