OK peeps I'm going to spare you the pleasantry's today because it would be disingenuous. This team has officially hit rock bottom and did it in legendary fashion! There are games where you measure yourself and see where you are and then there are games where you see the sad horrible reality that is the pile of crap that is the Calgary Flames. I love this team OK but this is just disgraceful and pathetic now. Sutter for some stupid reason keeps sitting Kipper in HUGE games and it makes me crazy. Why would you sit the only reason we have been a playoff team in the past and the only reason we would have a shot at Jay's promise of this year making the playoffs. Kipper is why this city got excited again for hockey. Kipper is the reason we had the C of Red, Kipper is the reason so many butts got to the seats and now I hear there is a possibility of trading KIPPER?!!!
I don't know why Iggy is so untouchable? He never got us to the playoffs before Kipper got here. He is a guy I love and respect but lets be real Kipper is the back bone and if you deal Kipper then we will go down in EPIC flames people! We deal Kipper and the fans will go MARK MY WORDS JAY! Don't do the same DUMBA$$ move that you did in Tampa! Listen to a guy who has been a member of this fan base in the 90's in the "young guns" days and knows that if you do this we will be there again.
Deal Iggy if you have to we can build around Kipper. We can get a bunch of rookies that can mess up and Kipper will be there to stop the pucks. Don't trade Kipper Jay no matter how much pressure you feel it is the WRONG MOVE! This team needs a new voice as well and Sutter needs to go. I used to love the Sutter's and thought that there way was the way but this new NHL as shown that old style of thinking is dead and we need some new blood. We need to wipe away all Sutter influence from this club and forge ahead. I like Daryl and Brent I really do, I liked there Cowboy hardworking style but the boys have tuned it out and it is plain as day (with the exception of Oili)
Please Jay don't deal Kipper and fire Sutter and the fans will stay. Get rid of Kipper and it will be so bad Jay you will never get a GM job again and you will be remembered as the guy who Killed this team forever. Until next time...
