So because he signed in Colorado 4 years ago, that means it was a lie?

That's just guess work on your part. A lot can change in four years from what you expected them to be. Maybe the issue of schooling wasn't as big of a concern for the family then as it is now.

Maybe they trade Kipper to LA in the same deal? We talk a lot about getting Iggy the Cup but what about Kipper? I'd sleep soundly knowing he was LA's second goalie...he could play 30 games a year and another 8 or so games in the playoffs. Heck, trade both Iggy and Kipper to us and we'll rebuild half your farm right there, Calgary.

(I know, wishful thinking. )
He has a cap hit of $5,833,333 for this year and next (actually slightly higher than Quick's cap hit when his new deal starts). Why would we want to tie almost $6 million up in a backup goaltender? And that's not to mention the assets we'd have to give up to get him, which (if we were to go with strictly draft picks) would likely cost 2 1st rounders plus.
