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.
The teams dependency on a goaltender like Kipper is dangerous. Relying on a goalie to bail out your team every game is a TERRIBLE mentality. The Flames needs to focus on better defence and offense, then the team could settle in with an average goal tender and still look very good. Kipper won't be around forever, and we need to see what our other goalies have in them.
