NHL Rumors VI: Flames give Maple Leafs permission to talk with Kiprusoff


  • Bruce Arthur: Dreger to Arthur: ”The Kiprusoff train is rolling between Dave Nonis and Jay Feaster right now, it really is.” Sides talked today. Dreger said that the Maple Leafs would prefer to extend Kiprusoff by a year or two. Kiprusoff could be interest in Toronto and open to a deal. Family is not an impediment.
  • Aaron Ward: The Flames have given the Maple Leafs permission to talk to Kiprusoff’s representatives.
  • Bob McKenzie: Another team is talking to the Flames about Kiprusoff.
  • Pierre LeBrun: No deal is imminent, and there is no guarantee that he is traded anywhere. Next season Kiprusoff is scheduled to make $1.5 million, but has a $5.8 million salary cap hit. There has been speculation that he may sign off on a deal if he could get another year financially. He can’t officially sign an extension until July as he still has a year left on his deal.
  • Iain MacIntyre: If Kiprusoff agrees to go to the Leafs, creates a tougher situation for the Canucks.

    Oh please trade for Kipper and PLEASE pass on Luongo.

    Kipper made a bad team, look good for many years and will for many years to come.

    He will make the Leafs great not just good and be a great1-2 punch for Toronto.

    I’ve up Scrivens and a second rounder and let’s go for a playoff ride!

    Extend Kipper for 2 more years at 5.5-6per.
    We lock up one on the bet net minders for 3 years at an average of less than 5million.

    Got to make this deal

    Luongo will end up being traded for 2 round pick and 3rd liner and a bag of pucks (used ones)

    I hope for his sake Vancouver puts the man out of his misery..

    @jeff. I hear gillis is asking for crosby from the pens, stamkos from the lightning, ovi from the caps or kane from the hawks. Gillis may also be willing to throw in a 7th rounder, what a bargain for an “allstar goaltender” Lots of teams interested I’m sure
