We played a solid game today, Kipper not so much.. Am I worried? Not yet he often has a tough time out the gate he'll bounce back. I think he still gets the nod on wednesday. I really hope Hudlers in on Wednesday we really need a spark or something

How soon until we see nothing but "Burn it to the ground!" "Trade everyone!"?

I'd also imagine the trolls will be out in full force soon... (if this continues).

Really? I thought it was very sloppy with poor execution... Bad passes, coverage, back-checking, etc.

We had our moments, but overall I wouldn't give it more than a 6 / 10

Our top 2 centerment based on ice time (Tanguay, Stajan) went 15 out of 29 the problem tonight was Backlund and Iggy.

What about this and trade Iggy to his native Stars (team that drafted him) for by example, Campbell or Faksa + multiple round picks?

I agree it was sloppy but atleast we showed some back bone tonight unlike the last few years.

Stempniak was solid tonight. Stajan was good, as was Comeau. But our leaders such as Kipper, Iggy, Cammy and Giordano didn't impress.

I didnt say perfect, but it was a good effort minus the start of the game, PP looked gd, top line improved from last game, theres a couple gd points to take from this game

Iggy had some poor back checks which lead to the 5th goal (swear it was offside) but offensively he was good I thought. I would agree with the other 3 I haven't even noticed Cammy in the first 2 games.

Absolutely. Just replying to someone saying they though it was a solid game (despite goaltending).

I thought they showed some backbone, but inconsistency is killing this team.. (I know that might sound extreme, but losing your first two games at home in a shortened season is a big deal.)

That was the worst I've seen of Kipper. He looked like a fish out of water he was flopping so bad to make saves

Yea it sucks but I think we should expect growing pains we are taking a team that hasn't had an offensive coach in 10+ years and have given them a week to learn an entire new system and none of the lines we are running this year played at all together last year. There is going to be growing pains like the second period last game we reverted back and played like **** tonight we played more in the new system but not 60 minutes. When we played Hartley's system out scored them 4-2.

This team won't cut it for a short season like this..Kipper needs to step up his game. I really like how they're playing more aggressive and creative though. They need to pepper shots on net like they did on Niemi in the first period last night.

I don't expect a playoff birth this year. Most we can do is hope for the Flames get their **** together though.

Gillies?Brossoit?Ortio?Hell Irving was better in the AHL on a worse team at the same age I would not give up a 2nd for Campbell. Yea I like our chances of finding a goalie just fine with out giving up Iggy for a decent prospect.

Gillies and Ortio is nowhere near of Campbell.
Brossoit is your best, underrated for sure.
Irving? Let me lol.
And I didn't say Iggy vs Campbell, but Iggy vs Campbell and a bunch of draft picks (not 4-5-6th round)

Take half a second to research our immense organizational depth in goal before the lecture professor. Please.

We have a top goalie in the WHL, NCAA, Russia, and Finland right now, not to mention two of the best goalies in the AHL on the Heat.

Please...

Brossoit and Gillies are great goalie prospects, and Irving has proven he can be an AHL starter (really good) and potentially back-up Kipper... Campbell's value has completely dropped the last few years...

run along now... back under the bridge.

Lots of improvements this game, looked better offensively and defensively, many of the Ducks goals were fluky. Kipper looked bad, if he was playing at his regular level we would have won easily. I'm not panicking. Some of the vets still rusty. I really like Wideman.

It was a fun game to watch at least. Onto the next one.

Don't forget our best goalie prospect, Kari Ramo.

I've seen Ramo more than once. Seems to me to be a Price style giving more flukes.
Brossoit is your best in my opinion.
Not sold on Gillies and Irving at all.
Ortio, you're talking about a league where Mika Noronen were dominating like hell and also, Ortio's an average goalie in it considering it is a really defensive league? Nice.

I'm not saying that Campbell is better than all of them, but all I say is the Flames don't have an NHL-caliber goalie prospects (except maybe Brossoit).
