Ramo is definitely the guy this season and next but once Kipper retires or signs elsewhere, it is believed Ortio will take the spot as either the Flames back-up or hopefully to share the job with Ramo. I would think that two Finnish goaltenders would get along very well in a tandem, just like when Kipper and Toskala were the duo a few years back. I think a more likely option when looking at goaltending depth for cheap would be Irving, I think he will progress into a top level goaltending talent, but the Flames are developing him extremely poorly.
They actually had the same coach in Turku
