Danny Taylor

Just noticed on the AHL transaction page that Danny Taylor has been recalled. Is there an injury or something else happening?

Just wondering.

I read that it is because Kipper's wife is having a baby. He is probably taking time off to be with her during the birth of his kid.

Kipper's s/o just had their second child so he didn't make the trip. No injuries to be concerned about.

This might be a good thing before the trade deadline. If this team loses games with Taylor in the crease, then at least the club would know for sure if they're buying or selling

Kipper's wife/unborn (recently born?) child support the tank.

I was more curious than concerned - trade deadline and everything.

I suppose spouse having a child is an acceptable absence.

BTW - with Kipper out of the way for a brief spell it would be a good time to tank. Maybe they should have brought up a kid from Utah.

Yep - because for some twisted reason the owners enjoy wallowing and languishing where the team currently sits.

If I were the owners I think I'd tell Kipper he was entitled to 6 months parental leave and send him home with a fruit basket, cigars or something.

Then I'd call up a kid from Utah instead of Taylor.

Hopefully we crash and burn, lose the next 5 and are out at the deadline.

How long would Kipper be off with the baby and all? Would it be 2-3 games?

This kind of thinking makes me sick, I could never cheer for this team to lose or hope for it.

If it is a boy, might as well sign him now, lock up our crease for the 2033 season and onward.

I don't think anybody would advocate for a 5-8 year rebuild like the Oilers. In saying that, if there ever was a year for the Flames to sell of their pieces and quickly accelerate the rebuilding process then this is the one to do it. Not everything has to be so black and white on this site, Calgary can without a doubt rebuild without going down the road of our neighbors to the north.

Shortened season? check
Ability to retain salary in a trade? check
Ageing yet still productive core pieces? check
Strong draft class from all accounts? check

These are opportunities that the Oilers did not have for the most part.

I can't help but to think that Calgary would be missing a HUGE opportunity here if they were to remain status quo at the deadline this season. We have stagnated as an organization and changes are needed. If 3-5 losses is what it takes to get management and ownership to realize this then I could get on board with that.

Can't believe people want this team to lose. We're 4 points out of 8th and 6 points out of 3rd. I can't get over how dumb our fan base is.

Realistically, we can afford to trade Iggy still. He has not been a determining factor of us winning games.


If u want us lose then cheer for the oil.

Very true, we are currently 9th in the west in ppg and that is where I imagine we end up.

Basically this. At the end of the day what matters is winning the Cup. If it's for the sake of achieving that goal just about anything will go. A few losses right now is nothing compared to watching this team go nowhere once again for another full season next year.

This is pretty much how I feel about our situation.

Of course I want the team to win when I watch them, but if I remove myself emotionally from the situation the best course of action becomes very obvious.

Most likely yes, but there could be some significant deviation if the team trades Iginla or other roster players at the deadline.

Personally, the only rational move is to sell at the deadline, regardless of how many points the team is from a playoff spot. They organization has to take a step back in order to take a couple of step forwards.

For argument sake what do you do if we are 2 points up on 8th?
