Default Jersey Poll - All Time #10

Did this five years ago, thought it might be interesting again. Always fun to see younger fans and older fans arguing over different generations in a battle.

Will put one up a day whenever possible.

Have fun! and Go old guys!

How it works:

I pick off a key group of players for each jersey. I don't use every name, as that gets tedious and unnecessary (probably go with say 5 unless there are many that wore the same number).

I also don't put up a guy for the number he isn't known for (Iginla shouldn't win #24 for example)

Results:
1 - Roman Turek 67.8% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=138746)
2 - Al MacInnis 99% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=138764)
3 - Dion Phaneuf 70% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=138765)

didn't see the point in running a true #9 poll ... Lever was a good hockey player, but was only in Calgary a season.

So put up 10 as well ... though it's likely just as one sided. Lots of good 10s actually but Roberts is Roberts

This will be a good one to find out who the comedians are.

Yeah, I liked Quinn, but this one's a no-brainer.

It's actually a very solid list after Roberts.

Eww Amonte? one of the worse Flames ever. Hated seeing him in our jersey not to mention the whole fiasco with Playfair.

Or the "Full Amonte" on the pay-per-view that time...

It's interesting to me that we don't have any more recent #10s. It seems like it would be a popular number.

I think Lowry would be 2nd. Obviously Roberts.

No love for Nik Hagman or Roman Cervenka?

Dan Quinn was a good little player. No slouch there.

Bill Clement was one of the veteran Flames back in Atlanta, and carved out a decent little career.

Lowry was one of the guys that helped to completely overhaul the culture in Calgary after the Young Gunz era. Can never give enough credit to him for that.

But Gary Roberts is one of the greatest players the Flames ever had, and was the prototypical power winger of his day. Not only that, but he went on after a very scary injury to his spine and had what would be a full career for most players. He's heads and tails above everyone else on this list for me.

My favorite all time Flame. Roberts did it all. Skate like the wind, great shot, check like a banshee, chippy, lippy and tough. And a 50 goal scorer. Should have retired a Flame.

It'd be awesome if Roberts got 100% of the votes

Gary Roberts was actually my favourite Flame of all time until Iginla showed up, and that's saying a lot given the other players I enjoyed watching like Al Mac and Nieuwy. Roberts was all heart and determination. No offense to the other guys on that list but they don't even come close.
