Calgary Flames general manager Jay Feaster has traded away very distinguished hockey players in Iginla and Bouwmeester – expensive, though, with cap hits of $7 million and $6.68 million, respectively – and his club continues to plummet in the Western Conference standings.
On Monday, sans Bouwmeester, the Flames were beaten up by their Alberta rivals, the Edmonton Oilers, 4-1. Calgary sits 14th in the Western Conference, two points clear of the bottom-dwelling Colorado Avalanche.
Frustration brews among hockey fans in Cowtown.
Feaster accepted his share of the blame for the dismal position his hockey club is in, but also believes there are lessons to be learned from hard times like this.
“But the reality of it is, if it’s on anybody, if it’s anybody’s fault, then it’s my fault. I should have had the intellectual honesty even earlier and said this isn’t working.
“So shame on me, but I’m making sure we’re going to correct that going forward.”
