Greatest Calgary Flames

The Flames have an exciting history, and sure, they aren’t the Montreal Canadiens, but who is? Today we will look at the greatest Flames to lace up the skates.

10) Gary Roberts

Roberts scored 257 goals for the Flames, including 53 in 1991-92, and is fourth in franchise history in that department. His 505 points are eighth-most in Flames history, while his 1736 penalty minutes are the second-highest total. He also was a member of the 1989 Stanley Cup champs.

9) Joe Mullen

A member of 1989 Stanley Cup champions, Mullen established career-highs with 51 goals and 110 points that season, led the NHL with a ridiculous +51 plus/minus rating, and then led the league with 16 goals in 21 postseason games that spring.

Over his four full seasons with the Flames, Mullen scored 47, 40, 51, and 36 goals and won a pair of Lady Byng Trophies.

5) Miikka Kiprusoff

Miikka Kiprusoff is the best goalie in Flames history and the backbone of the 2004 team that finished one victory shy of a Stanley Cup title. That season Kiprusoff fashioned a surreal 1.69 GAA and was a Vezina Trophy finalist with a .933 save percentage. In the ’04 playoffs, Kiprusoff had five shutouts in 26 games, a 1.85 GAA and a .928 save percentage. He did win the Vezina in 2005-06.

4) Joe Nieuwendyk

Nieuwendyk fell below 36 goals only twice in his career with the Flames, once when he had 21 over 46 games in the lockout-shortened 1994-95 campaign. He won the Calder Trophy when he scored 51 goals as a rookie in 1987-88, and the following season Nieuwendyk helped lead the Flames to the organization’s lone Stanley Cup championship with another 51-goal regular season — and another ten in 22 postseason contests.

3) Al Macinnis

Macinnis twice was named to the NHL First All-Star Team and three times was a second-team selection. He is the organization’s all-time leader in assists with 609 and ranks third in points (822) and games played (803).
