It's too bad he never got to hoist the cup. Great goalie for many years.

Would've been nice to see him win a cup, either way he had a great career.

28th overall pick and two middle tier prospects for Iginla is not Feasters fault?

Because being a good coach in LA means he was a good GM in Calgary...

Some next level logic right there.

The Regehr and the Iginla debacle are on Feaster's resume not Sutter's!

He was the only thing keeping CGY from total collapse. Maybe now they will stop trying to kid themselves and their fans. Total rebuild time. Sadly for their fans though I remember the GM saying they intend to be a playoff team next season. HAHA... Poor CGY.

In what way was the Iginla trade a "debacle". They traded an aging vet for a 1st rounder in a deep draft and 2 prospects. That vet had a NMC that Sutter gave him.

As for the Regehr deal, Sutter had handicapped the team with cap issues. Buffalo was able to bend them over on in order to clear 7 mil in cap space (Regehr and Kotalik).

Go and check the ages of those so called "2 prospects" and look at their projected ceiling then come back and talk about that deal. CGY got a late 1st round pick for Iginla and nothing more. Those 2 "propects" as you call them are projected by every scouting agency as being nothing more than journeyman AHLers at best. Most saying they'll probably never see regular work in the NHL.

That Iginla trade was a debacle because they waited 2 years too long and seriously hurt their franchise by doing so.

Happy retirement Kipper! Great goalkeeper who would've deserved a cup on his resumé.

He was a great coach here too, but the last 2 years for the Sutter era were a disaster for the Flames, as were his drafts.

Iginla had a NMC given to him by the previous GM. Feaster was not allowed to trade Iginla prior to this as ownership had given him a clear mandate to win now.

The deal that Feaster negotiated was with Boston. Even then he had limited options for teams.

Hanowski and Agostino are both rated as 7.0 C, which puts them above "journeymen".

Edit: Also, hate to ruin a Kipper thread by dealing with a Canucks troll, but those 7.0C ratings mean only 2 Canucks skater prospects are ahead of them: Schroeder who is a 7.0B and Jensen who is a 7.5C.....ouch

It isn't even worth the argument because those two guys will never play regular minutes in the NHL. Bank on it. Only in CGY, where they have nothing else in the cupboard, are those 2 players considered prospects and above avg. On most teams they wouldn't even be on the first page of assets.

Thanks for ******** up a thread about one of the best Finnish netminders ever and the best goalie to ever play for the Flames. I mean, its not like we haven't had entire threads and months to ***** about the Iginla trade and how Feaster is an idiot, because those topics have never been brought up before, right?

Congrats, Kipper. Enjoy retirement - it truly is a shame the Cup never happened in '04.

He was getting criticized on the radio here in Calgary this morning for the way he retired. It was "with all due respect" style criticism, since he kind of left the Flames hanging since he didnt give them a definite answer. And then the team gets word of his retirement via this, instead of Kipper telling the team himself (apparently).

I am a lifelong Pens fan, but I always had a soft spot for Kipper. Best of luck to him in retirement.
