Why sign Brust at the same time (yes, I know he was Ward's goalie.....) when Irving & Taylor would have been a good 1-2 punch?
Brust was signed well before the lockout when the flames thought there could be a season, so they should enter the season with potentially no goalie. Again the Flames most likely thought there would be a season so Irving stayed here to stay in shape now I doubt there is anyone looking for more than a backup for a guy that has only played 7 nhl games.
