from Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald,
With just five days to go until free agency, the Calgary Flames general manager simply can’t afford to waste any time — not with an estimated $20 million in cap space at his disposal to shop for players on the open market.
The draft is over, but the real work has just begun.
“We’re very busy,” Feaster says, emphatically. “I appreciate that there’s a sense that we’re just sitting here now and it’s fun and games. It’s not. We’re not happy with where we’ve been in the last three years.
“We’re not happy not making the playoffs.”
As no Calgarian needs reminding, the Flames have indeed failed to qualify for the playoffs for three years running. After a near-miss in 2010/11, Feaster promised to keep the group of guys together for their valiant effort down the stretch.
The same does not hold true this time around.
