Just another player only playing for his paycheck. Glad it's not happening.

Go find your own source.

Well, that's a bad attitude from your new GM. And at odds with not breaking the bank.

Truth refusing to play out the final year of your contract because you aren't getting paid enough is loyalty at its finest.

Agreed. It's like telling your girlfriend she's the only one for you.
But, hey honey, would you mind if I went over and talked to that other hot girl and see if she would be interested in going out with me.
But, hey, if that doesn't work out I'll be back to you.

Not as if Feaster would have gotten anything useful for him anyway.

Poor dude, no Stanley Cup to show for a good career.

I didn't think it made sense for Toronto to pick up Kipprusoff anyways. He's the worst starting goalie in the league for one. Secondly, he seems like a weird recluse so I can't see him being a good "Mentor" for Reimer.
What about Khabibulin? Obviously a lot cheaper, and by all accounts he's been a great mentor for Dubnyk, a Stanley Cup winner, and can still play at a high level in limited games.

Funny how he made his own NTC lol
Best part is that the Flames don't get anything for him.

Except another number in the rafters probably.

Gotta give credit where credit is due here, Nick Kypreos has been saying this from the start. That Kipper will not report, does not want to move, etc.

I dont think he has seen all his years yet. If on another team that was better than Calgary of late, he could serious steal some games and give a team a serious push in the post season.

Kinda sad to see someone retire before their time is up.

Thanks Kipper for everything!!
Call me crazy - but Kipper hasn't been the goalie you seem to remember for a long time now. I don't have a dog in the fight, but just don't see him as an upgrade on any of the play-off's teams starting goalies at this this point. As a quality guy to come in if the start bombs - sure, he would have been nice to have. But I don't think he was an upgrade on the starting goalies at this point.

Well by retiring he's saving the Flames more than $5 million on the cap.

At this point will the Flames even be able to reach the salary floor?

That stinks for my fantasy team. He is stinking on the flames, would have at least picked up a few wins with the Leafs.

It goes up each day as each day it costs slightly less to buy him out

Flames will probably sign Derek Roy to a 8 year $50M deal in the off season now just to help get to the cap floor...

Loyalty - or just not worth playing the last year based on the huge back-diving contract? I think that Kipper had the first back-diving contract, and it's pretty apparent what's going to happen with most of the other examples. Guys who have made $50+M over their careers are highly unlikely to stick around for $1M/year. I wonder if that is going to change the thought process from GM's on the contracts that are long enough to have the back-diving "surcharge" in place (Hossa, Luongo, Briere, Richards, etc.).

He was the reason the Flames missed the playoffs or got knocked out early, half the time. Don't feel too bad for him.
