CALGARY - The results are in. And they're not pretty.

Calgary Flames fans, weary of three straight springs without playoff hockey, appear to have run out of patience.

Flames supporters are torn on whether captain Jarome Iginla should remain a part of the future plan.

Half of those who responded to our survey said they want to see the Hall of Famer back in Flames silks.

That number is down drastically from the 83% approval rating Iginla received in last year's You Be The Boss poll.

Even all-world goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff's numbers are down, with 67% of respondents saying GM Jay Feaster should keep Kipper between the pipes. He was at 80% a year ago.

Mark Giordano, Michael Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross managed to escape the wrath of more than 80% of our readers.

But fans weren't as forgiving with Matt Stajan, Jay Bouwmeester, Blake Comeau and Henrik Karlsson, with the majority calling for the players to be moved or dumped.

And while Feaster received a thumbs up from 69% of readers, nearly two of every three fans want to see him hand head coach Brent Sutter his walking papers.

Should be an interesting off-season.

BURNING QUESTIONS

Given the fact the team has missed the playoffs three straight years, there is a large contingent of fans believing the Flames should trade their main players, especially with super sniper Jarome Iginla and MVP goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff getting older. Kiprusoff is 35, and Iginla is 34, which means the window to get solid value for each of them in a deal is closing rabidly. Iggy becomes an unrestricted free agent after next season, while Kipper has two seasons left on his contract with the club. What do you do with your two superstars?

Keep them both 36%

Fire Iginla, keep Kiprusoff 30%

next season?
