CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames shook up their front office
Thursday after a disappointing start to the season,
firing general manager Jay Feaster and assistant general
manager John Weisbrod.

. The Flames have
just 26 points this season, good for 13th place in the
14-team Western Conference. Brian Burke, the teams
president of hockey operations, will serve as acting
general manager. He said the search for Feasters
replacement is underway. Sources tell TSN Hockey Insider
Darren Dreger the Dallas Stars have granted Calgary
permission to speak with former Flames player and Stars
GM Joe Nieuwendyk. Burke felt the moves needed to be made
to get the franchise back on track as it tries to pursue
a championship. "I wouldnt have come here if that wasnt
the ultimate goal," he said. "I have to look at the steps
that have been taken and figure out whats the best way
for us to get on that path. "And I reached the conclusion
that we needed to make this change." Burke, who was hired
by the Flames in early September, added that one of the
teams priorities is to get tougher and more "truculent."
"We want black-and-blue hockey here, thats what we do in
Alberta," Burke said. "Weve got to be big and more
truculent -- I know youre all waiting for the word, there
it is. I want a little more hostility out there than what
Im seeing right now." Burke said it was tough to fire
Feaster, who he called a friend. But he said potentially
unpopular decisions come with the job. "Im not kissing
babies up here," he said. "Im not running for office.
This is about winning hockey games. And I have to take
the steps that I think are going to lead us to win the
most hockey games we can win." Calgary took an 11-15-4
record into Thursday nights home game against the
Carolina Hurricanes. "If you look at our record, its not
where we want to be and we have to change it as players,"
said Flames captain Mark Giordano. "You could call it
whatever, but the bottom line is this: as an
organization, Ive been here for a while now, and right
from our owners down, we want to win. "Nothing else is
acceptable. Weve got to start winning hockey games and
push this forward." Burke said there are no plans to make
any changes to the coaching staff this season. "When he
came in he told me he likes the way that we play," said
head coach Bob Hartley. "And this morning he told me
again. But at the same time, it doesnt change my job. You
come in every day, I have a great coaching staff, we have
players that want to learn and they want to work. "It
doesnt really change our day-to-day operation." Burke
said one of the reasons for the shakeup is that he
believes the Flames are giving up points in games they
should win. "Im frustrated like all of our fans are with
our inability to hold leads," Burke said. "I love how
this team works, I love how the coaches are playing the
kids ... Im just frustrated that we seem to routinely
turn third-period leads into losses." Calgary did not
make the playoffs in the two full seasons Feaster served
as GM. He took over in an acting role midway through the
2010-11 season, and Calgary did not qualify that year
either. "We wish Jay the best," said forward Matt Stajan.
"Hes a great man, he did a lot for the guys in that room.
Its too bad we didnt show better on the ice but weve got
to keep grinding here and find a way to win games."
Feaster previously served as GM of the Tampa Bay
Lightning, who he guided to a Stanley Cup win in 2004.
Burke has had a long career as a hockey executive. He has
previously served as GM of the Vancouver Canucks, Toronto
Maple Leafs, Hartford Whalers and Anaheim Ducks, who won
the Stanley Cup under his watch in 2007.

look at it," chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel said, setting
the stage for a rigorous first day of cross-examination
of Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympian charged with
premeditated murder for shooting Reeva Steenkamp three
times through a toilet door at his home.

-- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with
the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. WASHINGTON --
Buffalo Sabres interim head coach Ted Nolan said Sunday
the organization was surprised by prospect Mikhail
Grigorenkos decision not to report to a junior club in
Canada. "We knew obviously players would be disappointed
when something like that happened," Nolan said, "but no
indication that he wouldnt report." The Sabres assigned
the Russian centre to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec
Major Junior Hockey League on Saturday, hoping the 19-
year-old former first-round draft pick would get some
top-line minutes. Grigorenko has struggled to adapt to
the NHL in parts of two seasons, with eight points in 43
career games since he was selected No. 12 overall in
2012. But Grigorenko says he wont go to Quebec. He
apologized on Facebook on Saturday, adding: "We just need
to find a place for me where I can develop and be the
best hockey player I can be." Nolan said he doesnt know
what the next step will be for Grigorenko and Sabres team
president Patt LaFontaine.

one thing that you learn -- what you can control, what
you cant control," Nolan said. "Him and Pat will take
care of that." The Sabres would prefer that Grigorenko
play for their Rochester AHL affiliate, but an agreement
between the NHL and the Canadian Hockey League doesnt
allow teenagers to play in the AHL. Buffalo tried to send
Grigorenko to Rochester on a conditioning assignment in
November, but the NHL denied the request. Grigorenko has
played well in previous stints in juniors, posting 139
points in two seasons with Quebec, including 30 goals in
33 games last season. "P.K. Subban played four years in
Belleville, and he turned out pretty good," Nolan said of
the Montreal Canadiens defenceman. "Junior hockeys a good
place to develop." Grigorenko recently returned from the
world junior championships in Malmo, Sweden, where he led
Russia to the bronze medal with eight points in seven
games. cheap
