Why the sigh? Isn't it something they had to do with Kipper down for a few days?

Contract Term: a one year, two-way contract for $525,000/$80,000.

This is either a "just in case" situation, or it's a "Holy ****, Kipper's out for a while" scenario

I hope for the former.

Kipper is listed as day to day, we just need someone to sit on the bench.

Was more sighing at the fact that Kip is out for a few days. But yeah you are right. This thread should also be lumped in with Gleninator's lol.

Sigh? Really, what the hell else were they supposed to do? Be glad they didn't make a dumb trade.

Edit: Saw your clarification. Oh well.

Anyone with any idea?

Going with the hot AHL goalie? Although judging by the numbers alone it's a real toss up. I wonder if Ward tossed a coin when Feaster asked his opinion.

Good to see that sanity prevails and the Flames don't waste assets bringing in a another goaltender.

Taylor seems to play a more conventional style of goaltending.
Burst is aggressive, and I remember some other thread where people questioned his style in the NHL.

Especially when Taylor has been good enough to earn a contract.

Could be as simple as that. Hopefully he does well if he sees any ice time.

Kind of like the Karlsson, Irving dilema?

That was just flat out bad management. Letting 29 GMs make your backup decision for you is just plain nuts.

And so is only having 2 goalies signed to NHL contracts.

The sad thing is I don't think there is a back story. There's nothing that makes sense anyway. The only thing that would make sense (And it's a long shot) is the use of waivers to test the trade market for one or both of the goalies. E-mail would have been better but GMs must enjoy living on the edge.

More game appearances and wins (win percentage is the same) but my guess:

- more appearances against tougher opponents
- more consistent numbers in the AHL
- is younger (26 vs 29); could still be considered a developing player

To be honest I think it is a reward for what he did last year. He saved the Heat when Irving got called up, I think this is most likely a agreement that Feaster had with Taylor much like he did with Kolanos. If Taylor had a good attitude and did well he would be given the next shot and he has been.

Danny has earned this. He has been lights out since he signed in Abbotsford.

59 Games with the Heat. 30-19-4 record, 2.02GAA, .928SV%, 7SO

Brust is also a lot more scrambley in his crease and is more prone to take stupid penalties. I love what Brust has done for us this year but Danny without a doubt has earned this.

I am wondering what this means for Abbotsford tonight, they play against Rochester again with Brust starting, but who will they get in time to be the backup? Or will Danny stay until after the game tonight? Seems like a late night for him if that happens.

Abbotsford to Columbus would be a prohibitively long trip, even for a gate-opener job.

I'd imagine the Heat would call up someone from Utah.
