The rankings should be based on what the player accomplished in Calgary and not overall in his career.

Ranks

1. Jarome Iginla- 69%
2. Al MacInnis- 61%
3. Theoren Fleury- 66%
4. Lanny McDonald- 53%
5. Miikka Kiprusoff- 63%
6. Joe Nieuwendyk- 48%
7. Mike Vernon- 38%

Nilsson had the best offensive year for the Flames by far. He was also the most talented player on his teams during his time as a Flame. While his career wasn't as long as some as the guys alreay ranked, he could easily be placed 6/7. Pretty easy choice here.
Tough one for me next couple weeks where Loob/Roberts/Suter battle it out.

I don't know how Gilmour isn't in this conversation. He's a top 5 flame all time IMO. People forget the guy was a perennial Selke threat on top of the offensive numbers.

For me, it's simply due to his short career as a Flame. This poll specifies that the choices be based off the accomplishments of the player as a Flame. While Gilmour was a great player, and a huge part of that cup win, his 3.5 years just don't compare to other great players who played for twice that (or more).

Based on that I'd have him in the group with Mullen, Conroy, Lemilin, Otto, etc. They should all be in that 10-20 range.

He's gonna be a few rounds away before I start voting for him, but Conroy could make a case for the 11-12th place for me.

I like how Conroy has more votes than Reinhart. Something tells me the youngens here have no idea who Reinhart was..

I'm an old crusty ****er and I'd put Conroy ahead of Reinhart - personality goes a long way.

Agreed. Conroy immediately turned his career around when he arrived here. He became that #1 center we had been missing, and has been one of the best fan favorites for this franchise.

Also, to quote the OP: "The rankings should be based on what the player accomplished in Calgary and not overall in his career. "

He may not have been a 1000 point guy, but he's likely staying in Calgary for life. When you add on what he did outside of hockey, and with him still involved with the organization, I still think it counts based on what the OP is asking.

If we are doing it based entirely on "organizational impact" then yes, put Conroy ahead, but Reinhart was one of the most talented D-men of his era, I have to wonder how many people here actually saw him play, the guy was phenomenal.

I was just a baby when Loob played his last season with Calgary (and in the NHL), but I recognize the history and what he did for the franchise. Same thing with a guy like Lanny, Nilsson, Gilmour, etc.

The only oldies I'm old enough to really remember in the Flaming C are MacInnis, Theo, Gary Roberts, Nieuwendyk, Otto and Verny.
