He said co-assistant general managers Tom Kurvers and Claude Loiselle will split duties. Kurvers will be more concerned with player issues, more so on the minor league side. He said Loiselle will work on contract negotiations and CBA compliance. "So they'll be a division of work, the way I see it," Lawton said.

Feaster is a stand-up guy and a very solid GM who deserves a lot better than this. Remember, this man put together the 2004 Stanley Cup champions, so he won't have too much trouble finding another job.
