As long as opposing GM's aren't going solely by Kipper's stat lines ( which are admittedly terrible) I think he still has value. The vast majority of the goals being scored against Cgy this season have been tap in goals to a wide open net because someone didn't pick up their man. This is likely because the Flames have wingers playing center, which is fine in the offensive zone, but horrible in their own end. If Kipper were traded to a team with some center depth and something that remotely resembles a defensive plan I think you'll see his numbers rebound in a hurry.
