Should anything happen to Kipper, the Flames now have a backup goalie they can truly depend on to be there when they need it. Shooter tutor is a well-known goalie around the league. He is also one of the hardest working goalies in the league, showing up for every practice (including several thousand minor hockey league practices a year), and always giving exactly 100 percent.
Next, the Flames have two new forwards, ready to play as soon as Thursday. The first is a cardboard cutout of Assistant Captain Jarome Iginla. This version of Jarome is a little more two-dimensional (get it?) than the current version, so the extra-defensive work will be a big boost. And really, what team out there wouldn't want a second Iggy?
The other new forward is an even greater surprise. The Flames really are determined to re-create the 2004 stanley cup team, because they have gone all the way to the KHL to bring back another of their old teammates. That's right, thanks to Marcus Nilson's exceptional play in the Gagarin Cup, the Flames have decided he deserves another crack at the Stanley Cup, and asked him to come back to the team. Cup finals here we come!
