Best Trade In Team History: Calgary (including Atlanta Flames)

Anaheim: Chad Kilger, Oleg Tverdovsky, picks for Teemu Selanne, Marc Chouinard, picks (1996)
Boston: Barry Pederson for Cam Neely, 1987 1st round pick (Glen Wesley) (1986)
Buffalo: Stephane Beauregard, pick (Eric Daze) for Dominik Hasek (1992)


I think we can wrap up the Hasek I mean Sabres poll early.

Not a lot of good trades for the Flames, but here goes.

(now including the Kiprusoff deal)

A 2nd for Kipper is pretty great value

How can the Iginla trade with Dallas be the "best trade" in Calgary's history?

I'm debating between the Gilmour and Mullen trade.

Both were big parts of the Flames winning the Cup. I think I would go with the Joe Mullen trade.

Are you being serious?

How about the Flames traded a guy they were going to lose anyway and who was openly unhappy AND HOLDING OUT on a contract in Calgary for their current franchise leader in goals and points?

Best trade doesn't have to mean that you ripped off the other team to the greatest degree.

The "trade" yes netted you the best player in franchise history but other than that what? Im not saying it to belittle his reputation and what he brought to the team at all! At least with Nieuwendyk Dallas won the cup because of him.

Vezina winning goaltender for a 2nd pick is a much better than the Iginla trade.

Cam Neely didn't bring a Cup to Boston either.

Using your logic, Mark Recchi to Carolina should be better than the Francis trade. At least Recchi got the Canes a Cup. Maybe the Kaberle and Kelly trades should be way higher in Boston's history too?

Actually, I messed up in that last post. Francis signed with the Hurricanes. Point remains the same. A Cup isn't the only indicator of worth in a trade.

Don't understand how getting the best player in franchise history - and one of the best in the league the past 15 years - isn't leading. So what if Nieuwendyk helped Dallas win the Cup. Good for them. This is what's best for Calgary, not Dallas.

Kipper was good value, but he can't hold a candle to the player and tenure Iginla has been.

Agreed. Mullen (along with Slapper Al) led the Flames in playoff scoring during their '86 run. Plus he had a beast of a season in 88/89 when they won the Cup, with 110 pts (second best on the team was 85) and a +51 (second best was +45). In the playoffs he was second on the team in scoring (only to Slapper Al).

Being an integral part of two Cup appearances and a Cup win should tip the scales in the Mullen trade's favour, but the voters don't see it that way.

2nd rounder for Kipper. The Flames were out of a playoff spot when they made that trade, and they ended up going to Game 7 of the Finals largely because of the guy they picked up. That trade ended a run of 8 consecutive seasons out of the playoffs and got them 5 consecutive playoff appearences.

I thought I'd be saying the Iginla trade, easily.

But they gave up a very good player in Nieuwendyk for him.

With Kipper, they picked up a perennial all-star goaltender (also a more important position than RW) for JUST a 2nd rounder.

So the Kipper trade wins for me.

Tough choice between the Mullen, Gilmore, Iginla and Kipper trades. I think I'll say Iginla. Best player in franchise history for a holdout. Even though Nieuwendyk was a good player, the team didn't lose anything from it, similar to the second for Kipprusoff. And while he didn't win a cup, he did carry the team along with Kipper to game 7 of the finals

Picked Kipper for the 2nd rounder. Fun fact, that pick that the Flames traded to San Jose ended up being Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

On a side note, if the second rounder turned into a star player, would people still be saying the Kiprusoff trade? I don't think it should change anything personally as you should just the value of the pick at the time, but a lot of people here seem to look at who the pick is instead.

Edit: looks like it was Vlasic, so a very good young defenseman

Tough one between the Kiprusoff and Iginla trades; both have defined the team for the last decade. However, the Iginla-Nieuwendyk trade worked for both sides (helped get Dallas a Cup), whereas the Kiprusoff-2nd (Vlasic) trade was not even close in terms of who won. Edge Kiprusoff.

Without a doubt, this trade was the final piece to the Flames only Stanley Cup in 1989...

Mike Bullard, Tim Corkery, Craig Coxe for Doug Gilmour, Mark Hunter, others (1988)

The Iginla trade. As good as Nieuwendyk was the fact that Calgary got their best player ever for someone who wasn't returning to the team has to be considered a great trade.

Was a hard choice between Iginla and Kipper. Although Calgary traded a great player in Nieuwendyk, they also got back their franchise player in Iginla. Who says that best trade doesn't mean it can't be a win-win trade involving both teams? Because at the end of the day, we are judging this also based on who came back, not just what they traded away. Kipper for a 2nd is a great trade, but when you look at it from a distance, Iginla is their most important player (possibly of all time) so I feel the trade that brought him to Calgary would qualify as their greatest trade in franchise history.

This poll is going to be skewed by the ages of the people on this board. Not criticizing, just pointing it out.

The Mullen and Gilmour trades were both better deals than the Iginla one. The Kent Nilsson trade is up there too. Of the modern deals, I think getting a Vezina winner, Hart finalist for a pick is amazing.
