    It has been how many years now since Kipper and Flames still can't find a goalie who isn't a complete goober back there.

    Smith is cooked and will be lucky to get another contract next year if he continues this kind of play. And no it isn't because of the defence. Dude let's in at minimum 2 stinkers a game, 3 tonight, like 4 against Pittsburgh the other night.

    Flames have the 3rd highest save % goalie in the league in Rittich and they continue to play Smith over him.

    Can someone who cheers for a team with goaltending aware me on what it feels like having a starter where you actually trust him to make easy saves. I want to know this feel.

    Just give Steve Mason a shout, as long as he still wants to play that is.

    I get that they want to show confidence in Smith, but after he proves that decision wrong the 4th time, you start giving your other guy w/ a .940 sv% some more looks
