Well, if another goaltender goes down the next in line to get called up is Brust. He is not that far down the depth chart.

I agree that is very unlikely that Brust will wear a flames jersey this year, however, down the road he is closer to the NHL than Bryan Cameron, Gaelan Patterson, David Eddy, Ryan Howse etc. etc.
Maybe, but those are Flames property players, the Flames have no affiliation to, and/or potentially no interest in Brust. They never drafted or signed him. The Heats GM signed him. The only affiliations we have to him is that our farm team plays him on their team. We could just as easily go sign someone else's AHL goalie if we needed to.

BTW Brust is so far down the depth chart, that he's not even on it. In the event we lose Kipper and Irving, or Taylor, Gillies or Brossoit could be brought in, after that in 1 month or so Ramo would be the very first guy put onto the team. I doubt very very much that Brust is ever even invited to Flames training camp let alone brought onto the team ahead of the 6 guys mentioned.
