Kipper is a douche


Hardly.

He just had a kid with his wife. Not an easy decision to move away from his family at this point.

Besides, he's been like this for years. He never came to the IIHF tournaments to represent Finland. Sometimes for personal reasons and often because Calgary didn't let him. Business is business.

If the guy loves the Flames so much, can't he agree to play a measly dozen games in another city and let the struggling Calgary get some assets in return? No one said he has to move. It's a month... +play-offs, but I mean, if he goes to Toronto that's what, 4 or 5 games?

They aren't going to pay much if they know he's going to stop playing after the season

Good, any more threads on him and I was about to suggest he get his own pinned discussion thread! But seriously, it means Luongo is at the top of the food chain for available goalies again.

Canucks don't need a center, and Kipper is off the table.

Seems like today would be the perfect day to trade Luongo... Make it happen Gillis.

That's sad. The Flames have basically pushed him into retiring. He's only 36 and he said earlier on he wouldnt mind resigning in Calgary this summer, but this trade talk seems to of ended all that. Great career Kipper, goodluck!

Kipper is probably thinking why couldn't a real contender want him. He would rather retire and stay with Calgary than join the Leafs.

Ouch for the Leafs negotiating posturing.
But if they were serious about Kipprusoff they should be thankful they were saved from themselves.
Talk about trying too hard to force a circle into a square. That had disaster written all over it.

I think they only wanted him if he would play another few years. TO didn't want to trade for a rental goalie.

He's probably THE player I hated the most simply because he plays on another team, specifically the Flames. Before VAN got Luongo that is.

You know if he's willing to sign as a back up..... Vancouver and Abbotsford are a short hop away. Some VAN fans would hate it but could take comfort in knowing that more CGY fans would.

Oh man Calgary blew it...

What Kipper should have done is only told mangenment about retiring then Calgary's GM could have convinced him (with money) to be traded for assets then just retire immediately or whatever.

Then between that and the Iginla business Calgary's GM could at least go down as the biggest troll in NHL history. :P

Man, what the hell are you talking about? Are you seriously saying players should sacrifice themselves for sake of the team? Or do you just hate the Flames that much?

I do not understand why Feaster wouldn't let Kipper stay in Calgary. After all that time there he must've thought it was a good city to start a family (he can raise his kids in Finland a couple years later, no harm done). I might've stayed there and keep the Flames above the cap floor, and then head off into the sunset (or even re-sign a year and help the rookies). Either way, this could have been handled better.
