Not at all a bust. He could probably play in the NHL at least as a backup right now.

The issue is that he is in the KHL, not the Flames system and so he goes pretty much unnoticed.

FWIW he said something along the lines of wanting to come here if he had a legitimate shot as being the #1 Goalie.

Maybe next year we will see a tandem of Irving/Ramo if Kipper is moved or retires.
