Actually, he was still "very good" 2 years ago he just wasn't great. Fans in Calgary are so spoiled by him that when he doesn't stand on his head for long stretches he gets crapped on because he looks human. I get what you are saying, but the fact is he was still above average and better than most goalies. Not very good is not accurate IMO.

The problem on this team isn't Kipper, he's our best player without question. If Feaster is serious about competing we need to get an actual #1C. If that costs us Gio then so be it, a #1C is the hardest area on a team to fill.
