Those are just a few of the goalkeepers who have served as the backup to Miikka Kiprusoff since he became a standout netminder for the Flames early in the 2003-04 season.
None of them, plus the handful of others along the way, ever showed the ability to be a No. 1 twine-minders in Calgary.
Frankly, none of them ever had the chance.
Kiprusoff’s abilities and durability were huge factors in keeping any threat at bay.
Likewise, the degrees of success seen from any of those other goalies were limited to non-existent.
With Kiprusoff out of action on a day-to-day basis — it could be a game, could be a week, could be more, nobody’s saying — the Flames and their faithful will finally get a taste of what life will be like without the workhorse standout.
