Most Flames here thought Irving or Karlsson would fight for the spot. I can't imagine what backup we would want in a trade...There was talking of giving Brust a call up though.

Sigh, you are probably right. Would not be surprised if Irving is gone.

They have yet to decide who the backup will be, and this gives them the opportunity to freely send one of them down when they make a decision.

If one gets claimed then great we have found our backup for the season.
Good point, but if they are both claimed?

Also choosing a backup based on a process of who doesn't get picked up on waiver is a ****ing stupid idea.

So we are going to go with whichever backup is deemed worse by the NHL as a collective? How is that a logical plan lol.
