The difference between kipper playing bad and Irving's first game is huge. Kipper, though he's had some bad games, still looks like an elite goalie and he has made some elite saves in pretty much every game. Irving looks like he is about to piss himself when a puck is tossed his way. Irving has the ability to be a starter, but after only 1 NHL game this year, I'd easily pass on starting him against the sedin twins.

Kipper will come around, he always does, he is the flames best chance at a win on most nights.
