Now based on that what do you do in the following scenarios:
  • If the Flames are in a playoff position at the trade deadline - I assume you keep Kipper and Irving and hope to make the playoffs and a run.
  • If the Flames are a borderline playoff team at the trade deadline - do you trade Kipper?

  • If the Flames are not all that close to a playoff team at the trade deadline - do you trade Kipper?
  • In the off season regardless of how this season went - do you trade Kipper?
I feel as though the smart answer to both of those is yes..
