Shanahan admitted Friday that he met with Flames management last week and there was speculation the NHL's czar of discipline was in line to replace Feaster. "This is not a death watch," King said Monday. "I can tell you we are now on a long-term process to add depth to our hockey operations. We want to get back to where we should be, and this is something we think is consistent with that. We have a GM, and Jay is involved in this process." It remains to be seen if Shanahan might be offered a front office position or what sort of role he would have with the Flames.
