Best and worst of Jay Feaster's Lightning moves

Jay Feaster's best and worst

The former Lightning general manager made many moves in his six years on the job. Some of his most memorable:

Best Worst
1 Acquired D Darryl Sydor and a 2004 fourth-round draft pick from the Blue Jackets for C Alexander Svitov and a third-round 2004 pick, on Jan. 27, 2004.

2 Acquired LW Cory Stillman from the Blues for a 2003 second-round draft pick, on June 21, 2003.

3 Acquired RW Ruslan Fedotenko and two 2002 second-round draft picks (one of which was traded for Brad Lukowich) from the Flyers for the No. 4 overall pick in the 2002 draft, on June 21, 2002.

1 Acquired G Marc Denis from the Blue Jackets for LW Fredrik Modin and G Fredrik Norrena, on July 1, 2006.

2 Being part of the decisionmaking that, after Nikolai Khabibulin left as a free agent, led to three seasons of porous goaltending from John Grahame, Sean Burke, Denis and Johan Holmqvist.

3 Not trading players such as D Pavel Kubina, RW Ruslan Fedotenko and D Cory Sarich before they left, without compensation, as unrestricted free agents.

  5. Jones: Where are the difference-makers on the Bucs defense?

    Bucs
