After a weekend spent watching the Flames punt one of their hard minutes defenceman out the door at this weekend's draft in St. Paul, like Ryan Lambert, I can only wonder exactly what the hell Jay Feaster is playing at. While I suspect most fans were hoping for the team to begin the clean-out of the club's extraneous players, I'm fairly certain Robyn Regehr wasn't the first name that came to mind. Reggie's move to the balmy climes of Lake Erie wasn't the only move of interest over the weekend, of course, and after the jump I'll offer a few thoughts on the festivities.

I have already been critical of the whole Jay Feaster situation, and vociferously so. I don't think he's the right guy for the job and I don't think the Flames looked hard enough to find someone who would be. They simply picked the closest guy with experience, etc.
But now I'm really worried, because he might be worse than I thought.

When we did this on Thursday night, it was a resounding success on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960, but on that night, we only had things to speculate on. Now that all five of Calgary's picks have been made, now that Alex Tanguay has been re-signed, and now that Robyn Regher's time with the Flames is over, it's time for another edition of FlamesNation Radio, starting at 3 pm.

The Calgary Flames have officially traded defenceman Robyn Regehr to the Buffalo Sabres along with Ales Kotalik and a 2012 second round draft pick in exchange for defenceman Chris Butler and forward Paul Byron. The deal included all the particulars we had heard last night, with the only difference being the second round pick heading Buffalo's way instead of vice versa.
We will have a full write-up including cap implications and profiles of Butler and Byron later today.

It's been quite a ride already with the Flames keeping 13th overall and picking Sven Bartschi and then trading Robyn Regehr, but the draft isn't even half over yet. Today the action resumes at 9am MST.
