We were all expecting a couple weeks to go by and Kipper to come out and announce that he will/will not be back with the Flames in September. The last we heard was from Flames sage Curtis Glencross who expects him not to come back. I’m sure that if he does decide to retire, it’ll be through Finland’s media and we’ll find out about it from *shutter* Eric Francis who seems to follow everyone on Twitter. Except me for some reason. He probably can’t find my follow button.
So what can we do in the meantime? Well I guess we can use Google Translate to search Kipper’s local newspapers for ‘Kiprusoff’ and ‘retirement,’ and we can speculate what a good post-NHLer job would be for him.
First off the search. Well, according to http://www.mtv3.fi he is not planning on returning to play in Finland next year. That’s kinda news I guess.
Secondly – and most importantly – what would be a good job for Kipper in retirement? I’m going to put my money on a Customs Officer at Turku’s International Airport – Turavia. Because all you need is a stone-face and no personality!
