Miikka Kiprusoff’s (official) retirement

12 Sep

Although not really a surprise to anyone, the announcement of Kipper’s retirement is a reminder of just how bad this team is going to be this year. And next. And the year after that. etc.

What’s this team trying to sell to us fans? I don’t even know who to put on the back of my new jersey (if I’m even willing to buy one this year).

  • The Flames have no goalie.
  • The Flames have┬áMark Giordano and Dennis Wideman on defense and nothing else.
  • The Flames have┬áMichael Cammalleri up front and not much else. Maybe Glencross is worth a mention, but really – he’d be a third-line guy on any playoff team.

It’s going to be a long few years.

Here are the early guesses at what this team may look like, your 2013/14 Calgary Flames:

  1. Curtis Glencross – Mikael Backlund – Mike Cammalleri
  2. Sven Baertschi – Matt Stajan – Jiri Hudler
  3. Lee Stempniak – Sean Monahan – David Jones
  4. Tim Jackman – Corban Knight – Roman Horak
  1. Mark Giordano – Dennis Wideman
  2. TJ Brodie – Derek Smith
  3. Chris Butler – Shayne O’Brien
  1. Karri Ramo
  2. Joey MacDonald

Like I said, it’s going to be a long few years.
