Well this could have been a lot worse. The Flames were badly outplayed and outshot 35-16, but Miikka “you ain’t gonna trade me” Kiprusoff kept it respectable. But the storyline is, and will be for the next week, what will happen to the Flames before the trade deadline.
It’s interesting that Miikka isn’t interested in a trade – if only for a few month rental. I would think that he would want to go out on a high note, rather than just try to keep the lowly Flames out of the basement. Oh well, good for him for putting his family first.
Iginla on the other hand is in a different situation, he can be a rent-a-player for a few months without having to hurt his family, his team, or his fan-base here in Calgary. I can’t see why this deal does not happen. And Chicago seems like the perfect destination for him.
But who really cares about talk of trading our best player and best goalie this franchise has ever known? I know you’re really interested in seeing how I did with my predictions from the last post!
