Don't know if there's any veracity to it though, and even if there was, he could have changed his mind. If he feels he's still playing at a high enough level, he may decide to stick it out for a little while longer. Maybe he wants to win a Cup before he retires. Then again, he still goes back to Finland every summer. Maybe he'd rather play out his final years at home.
In the summer Kipper did a interview for a Finnish newspaper, (tried to find it, couldn't) Kiprusoff was talking about what he plans to do after his contract, and he said he would love to continue playing with the Flames, but if the Flames didn't re-sign him he would go coach his team in Turku, and that he only wanted in Calgary, so thats hopeful at least.

I looked again and couldn't find it so take this with a grain of salt but I remember reading it.
