while i don't think feaster is the guy either,i think you have to wait till summer to see if an experienced hockey gm is avil. i don;t want to see kisio he has no nhl experience nor was he ever able to get the hitmen over the tp even with some very good teams.this is the most important team decision for the next 5 years,hopfuly they find the right person.ownership waited too long and missed a shot at stevie y,hopefuly they get it right.

@Terry C

Actually, McNab in Anaheim (SVP Hockey Operations) would be a far better choice than Kisio. Or Feaster, for that matter. And he's signed for only one year with the Ducks. He's on the cusp of availability.

I stand corrected. I say nab McNab. Soon. He won't be in Anaheim next season, methinks...

Feaster scares me. He's a lawyer, not a hockey man. Probably never played a game of shinny in his life.

King and Feaster should go. Bring in Kisio. Goulet. And Plyafair.

Not sure where you are getting this from? Has been a GM at the AHL and NHL level for 20 years. Was AHL executive of the year in 1997. Joined Tampa in 1998 and won a cup with them in 2004. If this guy isn't a "hockey guy" then I'm not sure who is?
