A goalie like Kipper is allowed to have bad games, simply because we all know that he's proven and will bounce back. Unfortunately for Irving, he doesn't have that luxury. As soon as MacDonald got picked up, we all knew that it was either lights out for Irving or he loses his job.
This is the problem. Why doesn't he have time? The Flames need players like Irving to get their minutes in the big leagues without the pressure of a playoff run. There's lots of time for Irving to play his way into a spot. Kipper's still out and Mac is only a waiver pickup for insurance purposes.
