"They give us the resources necessary to do our job, and it's our responsibility to do that job."
For the off-season, the Flames' focus will need to turn to a potential re-tooling as management is expected to hold discussions with captain Jarome Iginla and starting netminder Miikka Kiprusoff, who could possibly bring a hefty return in a trade.
Meanwhile, Feaster refused to comment on Iginla, Kiprusoff or any other individual.
"We've missed the playoffs for three straight years. It's clear we have to make changes. We're going to have to do a number of things this off-season because this is not a situation I want to be in next year. I'll tell you that right now. I have no interest in standing here on April 10th next year and explaining why it is we've missed the playoffs."
The GM also remained mum on the future of coach Brent Sutter, who is now without a contract. Management and Sutter, who has expressed a desire to return next season even though the Flames embark on a rebuild, have yet to talk about a new deal.
However, it appears difficult to justify the return of a coach who couldn't lead his players into the playoffs during his three-year first term behind the Flames' bench.
The Flames ended the season in ninth place of the Western Conference, just five points out of playoff contention.
