Anyone else getting a bad feeling about goaltending?

If they choose to honor his play after his career is over, then they can do that. Until then, they have a business to run and there is no room for sentimentality while trying to run a hockey club. The Flames need to focus on the future that is sadly arriving at their doorstep quickly. They need to prepare and the rebuild and make sure they have the maximum resources available to shorten the time frame it takes. Kiprusoff is still a player they may be able to use to garner a good prospect, but only if they act fast.
That I recognize, and have recognized for several years, that this team is a big steaming turd and headed in the wrong direction? That the veterans on this team are in dire need of a change of scenery? That the best players on the team are all under 27, and those that are over the age of 35 are an anchor to the team moving forward? This team is in need of a major retooling. That won't happen as long as management and the fans continue to cling to the crazy idea that players over 35 are the core of the hockey club and worth building around. It's time to move on and start looking toward a new team with new stars.
But tell us how you really feel
