The Flames Backup

Who's the Flames backup? Is it still McElhinney? And if Kipper got injured long term would he realistically be the starter?

Yeah, McElhinney is the backup.

I think if you saw Kipper go down for any extended period of time, Irving would be in C-town with the starting job temporarily

I don't know about that. I'd say McElhinney and Keetley would be ahead of Irving for now.

I agree with this statement. Irving needs some time in the pro ranks before NHL consideration.

For sure. I don't think they would bring Irving up to start if Kepper went down. I don't know if he will even be starting that many games in Quad Cities this year..

Didn't Sutter say he wanted Irving to get a ton of games in QC this year? I thought i read that on a post and saw it in an interview with Irving

i'd agree with this as well

although mc.e and keetley(running 1a/1b?) would be a pretty scary thought if kipper goes down. hopefully he stays healthy
