From Adrian Dater of the Denver Post:
Just got off the phone with Jay Feaster, the former G.M. of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
He has contacted Pierre Lacroix and told him of his great interest in the vacant Avs G.M. job. Feaster has a connection to the Avalanche – he was the G.M. of the Hershey Bears when the Bears were an Avs affiliate. Pierre basically hired him for that job, and played a role in helping him get the G.M. job in Tampa.
Feaster won a Stanley Cup five years ago, but was let go in all the madness that engulfed the Lightning not long after.
He’s had an interesting career path. From law school to working at a firm to working for Hersey to the Lighting GM. In fact as Dater says he owes his hiring in Tampa to Pierre Lacroix who recommended him for the job to Lightning Coach Jacques Demers so he already has a good connection in Denver. Could be a good fit.
