The Flames were reportedly offering $1.4M as a lowball arbitration offer, while Kiprusoff's agent wanted $4M. I'd say this is fair, definately not Giguere money ($4.5M annually) and definately a good investment. If Kipper crashes & burns, he's making slightly more than Roman Turek. And now that Turek took a pay cut from $5M to $2M, we get two goalies at the price that we got Turek for.

Not bad at all considering he got just under $900,000 last year.

Tough break getting Kiprusoff in arbitration this year. With the number of goalies over the past decade who have had a short, spectacular run and then fizzled into nothing I wouldn't be too excited about that pricetag just yet. If he plays the way he did this year from here on, it's a steal. But there have been too many Jim Carey, JS Giguere, Johan Hedberg, or even Roman Turek types in recent memory to get all excited about paying 3 mil to a guy who has about 2/3 of a good season under his belt.

I'm excited to see Crosby play with "the winger for Crosby," but yiiiiiiiiikes. All that for an UFA. Maybe "all that" will never pan out. But this is jarring. They'd better re-sign him. What's Colorado doing?
