I don't know what exactly Sutter's philosophy about injured players is, but to me if the backup is in the middle of a hot streak you jump on and ride him until he falls. When Turek's ready you give him the "backup" games and let him know what the situation is up front. Turek seems like a pro, and the Flames have a pretty solid dressing room so I would guess that it wouldn't cause too much friction. Roman shouldn't be too bent out of shape to see a guy playing that well get a chance to win more games, especially if he knows he'll have to ease back into his workload and that he'll get his chance to be #1 again *if* he performs.

Of course, if Kipper has one bad game or loses 2 in a row you give Turek the next few starts and see what happens from there.
