Backstrom is overrated...

Wow... 3 win and 2 shutout... Pascal LeClair got two shutout... Oh he win a Roger Crozier... So Huet also had a Crozier and an All Star apparence, that doesn't mean he is better than Kipper...

Kipper >> Backstrom.


The way Hamrlik is playing so far, I think Calgary fans will miss him a bit, he is absolutly stellar in his own zone...

But hey, Iginla-Lombardi-Huselius-Tanguay-Langkow this is a great offensive crew, they need another top-6 centre, Conroy is washed up, their defense is average right now.

Well, that's new.
Did I say he was burned out right now? No I didn't. He shows breakdowns late in the season and the playoffs except the trade year which he was fresh after playing the backup role.

This is where I find people criticize him, after he has been dragged through the dirt all year.

He is a top 3 goalie in the league.

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.

If anything, I'd say that Kipper gets a little underappreciated. He's clearly in the upper tier of goalies with Luongo and Brodeur.

Kippers fine. Just give him a little time. He needs some wins real soon and will get them.

The more talented the Flames get offensively, the worse Kipper does statistically.

Maybe they should go back to an all-plumber-plus-Iginla team.
