By that same logic losing with Irving/Taylor/MacDonald in net doesn't make us a bad team either then.

We lose just as bad with Kipper, his numbers are dismal so far this year.

Sample size...

We don't win if he isn't in net last night, he was stellar.

Again with numbers determining the play of a goaltender. I can only think of two games he's played where he cost us the game, and I can think of several games we won because of him, then there are the games where we won and lost as a team. Numbers are only a slight representation of the actual play of a goaltender. If you only look at his numbers he hasn't actually been that good for a good chunk of his career, but those that watch him, and I mean actually watch HIM play, can tell you that almost every night he brings it, and if you want to score you have to BEAT him, very rarely will you get a weak-mediocre one by him, and because of that, he gives us a chance to win every single night. It's too bad his best years were wasted on an abysmal team.

Any of you guys have a youtube of that horrendous call on Glencross last night?

I think it was for boarding on Smith, where Smith looked up saw him coming and turned at the last second.

Not a flames fan by any stretch, but that play right there, and why it was called a penalty is exactly what is wrong with the NHL today.

BS call. Said it in this thread already. Smith slammed his own face into the boards. If he just takes the hit there's no problem.

Considering that Nashville is in Vancouver tonight we could very well see the backup again tommorow.

Meh, the right call was made - any way you slice it, that hit was illegal. Glencross didn't have to plow him into the boards. And it was only a two minute minor.

Hitting in itself is not illegal(well these types of penalites may call that fact into question). Smith turns away towards the boards and Glencross has no way to stop in time. It's an accident, nothing more.

Yeah that's a first... Damn. We HAVE to be the least active board on HF. I get why, but it's still weird.
