This has to be Guy Chouinard he played all but one of his seasons with the Flames and is in the top 10 for goals, assists, and points he was the first Flame to get 50 goals in a season no one else comes close on the list to what he accomplished as a Flame. He is easily the most underrated Flame on this list.

Three seasons in Calgary. No SCF appearances. No Cup. Lots of other guys on that list belong ahead of him.

I thought it was with the Flames in general I guess I misread. I think it should be with the organization as the Atlanta Flames are part of our past.

I disagree. Phoenix really hasn't honored any of the Jets. Carolina hasn't done so with the Whalers. Colorado hasn't with the Nords. The new Jets aren't really keeping the Thrashers history. I doubt many of us care about the Atlanta days. When I think of the Flames, I think of CALGARY.

Gilmour is a bit high, isn't he? 3.5 seasons in Calgary, and he's good for 12th all time.

Forwards have been way over favored thus far.

I'm going with Reinhart. Regher should start to get some consideration soon too.

Personally I had/have Reinhart, Conroy, Regher, then Gilmour & Mullen. So I agree with you a bit.

I am amused by all the Housley support after how much flak I took for basically demanding his presence earlier in the process...

In terms of career? Sure, he wasn't that significant in his years in Calgary though, great player no doubt. I would say Reinhart, even Ramage had a bigger team impact though.

Definitely not.

Compare what Reinhart did in Calgary, then compare that to what Housley did in Calgary.

Housley might have had the better career, but Reinhart did more/played more for the flames.

I'm not sure if the Housley support is sarcastic or not, but it should be. I don't have him in the top 20, and I find it hard to see how someone can argue he is.

Paul Reinhart was a decent PMD on a good team scoring a lot of points during a high scoring era. Unfortunately he was made of glass, and he played like it - a lot. If he was able to stay healthy, we might be having a different discussion, and he wouldn't have been given away for nothing near the end of his short career. Sure, he did play more for the Flames, and scored more points, but I don't think that's the whole criteria for this scenario. Once Suter & Macinnis established themselves, he was quickly relegated to a supporting role.

Phil Housely helped keep the Flames from being a complete laughing stock during the dead puck era. However, one could argue that a few first overall picks during the Young Guns period would have benefited the team in the long run. Assuming, of course, the right player(s) would have been drafted...

Tough to say, Calgary had a lot of good forwards and its hard to rate a defenseman from the 80's and early 90's since their was so much scoring.

Uh pretty sure you did not watch him play much from this assessment. Most of his injury issues were during the tail end of his career when his back gave out. He was normally a healthy player for most of his career. Also how does McInnis and Suter being better make Reinhart worse? That's such a flawed argument. Calling him a decent PMD is also completely inaccurate. He was regularly above the 50 point mark as a defender, something only a handful of defenders did each year even in that era while playing twice the defensive game Housley did. Your argument as to why that makes Housley better is non existent. Housley had literally no defensive game. Purely a point getter much like Wideman, and in his time in Calgary his averages were worse than Reinhart. The fact anyone can have Housley over Reinhart is just hard to fathom.

Not only should Reinhart be ahead of Housley, Regher should too.

Uh, you sure you did? His back injuries plagued him for most of his career - the pain just became unbearable near the end, forcing his retirement. The pain that he was in was quite obvious in some games - for someone who implies to have watched him play you seem to conveniently ignore the fact that he completely shied away from the physical aspect of the game as a result of these injury problems.

I didn't say that they made him worse, please don't put words into my mouth. I said the emergence of Suter & MacInnis relegated Reinhart to a secondary role with the team - because they were better.

Funny how you bring up points not being an issue, right after you use that as your claim that Reinhart was so much better than... anyone. If you thought by bringing in Housely the Flames were getting a Norris defenseman, that's on you. However, his offensive vision & hockey IQ was unmatched - possibly by any defenseman to ever play in Calgary, and yeah he was a sieve defensively but IMO he made up for it by his offensive contributions.

Look, I'm not saying Reinhart was a terrible player - and if that was the impression you get, that's not my intent. What I'm saying is that Reinhart could have been quite good had he not had injury troubles. That's kept him at "decent" in my mind. If he didn't have those problems, he most likely would have been a perennial all-star, but he did. Maybe it's my disappointment that he didn't evolve into that player which has tainted my view of him, I'll admit that. As a result of what he didn't contribute (just as much as what he did) I measure his impact to the team as less than Housley's impact.

Macinnis & Suter would have made almost any Dman 3rd. It's not like Housley was a physical Dman either. This is more than just how many points someone put up, were they a leader on the team and did they do alot in the community? When I think of Housley (and I don't that often), he just doesn't stand out in my memory as a Flame.
Looking back at the Dmen we had in Housley's second stint with us how did we not make the playoffs? Housley/Morris/Gauthier/Lydman/Regher/Albelin/Smith/Hulse/Simpson
