I mean Kipper is going to play the bulk of the games, and Joey Mac has proven a good back-up

I love Ramo, and would want us to trade Kipper, Iginla, Gio and re-load with picks and players toward next year, but since that still appears unlikely, what's the point of Ramo now?

why not bring him over for next fall?
Flames can't trade kipper and by all accounts he wants to stay here, you can't trade a guy who wants to play in the city with his family if he has a NTC and doesn't want to move.

And the point of Ramo now is if Kipper gets injured or by some miracle we make the playoffs we have two goaltenders with playoff experience and know how to be the starting goalie of a team. In no way are the Flames capable of consistently winning with MacD in net, but with Ramo the team can play with confidence in front of him. Playing with two real goalies instead of 1.25 NHL goalies give this team a significant advantage.
