He's a top 5 goalie but he's got one of the worst offensive teams in front of him.
I'm sick of fans and the media (just the other day on TSN) always saying that Calgary has problems with offense. Calgary was ranked 7th in the league for goals for last year.
This year so far...Calgary has scored 2 goals in every game this season...but our defense has sucked and the PK is especially bad.
As for Kipper...his Vezina season he started with 3 games of 6.00 GAA hockey. Last year was just as bad. October is the Flames (and Kipper's) worst season every season. It's probably his laid back summer attitude where instead of training, he disappears into the woods of Finland going fishing and smoking in the lake.
There's no way Kipp is overrated. He's a proven top 5 goaltender year-in and year-out and if anything, he is often overlooked by the likes of guys like Broduer and Luongo. I think lately he's been a little under the radar but he'll still produce just as well as he has the past few seasons.
damn i misread the question i thought the question was is he a top 3 goalie
and i said yes then i looked at the results and it was something like 67 no's and 17 yes
whatever Kipper is no way overrated.. come on guys... He is right there behind Lou and Brodeur
