You don't give up on these guys that easy, especially based on stats. That's like trading away Horak because he only has 12 points in 64 games. Anyone who's seen Horak knows he makes mistakes and isn't ready for the top 6. But you still don't give up.

Besides, our defensive game has been terrible this year.

The Flames have no confidence in Irving. If they thought he would be a long term prospect, they would have given him the #1 job in the AHL, they would not have waived him at the beginning of the season.

They have no plan for him. He was nothing but a lightly used backup for Kipper. Now with Kipper being out, they need somebody that can play and they dont want to trust Irving with that.

Unfortunately for him, he proved to them again that they are correct...so he is gone, probably for good now.

Surprised, another first round bust....why is Todd Button still around?
