Thumbs down Mike Smith's... woes? He blows? Eating crows? Who knows!

Call it reactionary, whatever. The body of work here is immense and it's not unreasonable to say that Smith (assuming the Flames lose tonight) will have cost the Flames ~8 points this season after tonight.

This is absolutely unacceptable. This guy cannot continue playing for the Flames. Smith looks abysmal in net and it would not be intelligent management to keep starting him.

Or you just play Rittich the majority of games now.

Waive Smith, then... Call up Nick Schneider?

No, you do what any competent general manager does and contact one of the teams with an excess goaltender. Smith is not NHL-calibre.

Nobody will take him but you’re 100% correct. He’s done.

I'd rather see Gillies and Rittich again. At least those two have the potential to get better. Smith is done. How many more weak wrist shots do we have to watch squeak through his pads before Treliving/Peters figure it out?

Smith is done. I am hoping he will announce his retirement post game.

I would settle for just having him on the bench.

Why do the media continue to give this guy a pass! If I have to hear Loubardias and Derek Wills defend this guy...

I'm no Smith fan at all, but Smith let's in wristers from the circle, Gillies let's them in from center.

Hopefully Peters figures it out and realized that Smith is horrible!

So hear me out on this...


Chicago pulled the Hossa allergy

Detroit pulled the zetterberg

Can we circumvent league rules and just take the cap hit and send him on a 5 month conditioning stint in the echl?

If Peters goes back to Smith outside of a b2b situation, he should be fired.

Get Smith the EFF off the ice. Guy has become a complete loser.
