Default Jersey Poll - All Time #13

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)

The next time you do this, it will be Johnny Gaudreau.

Squid on this one. He at least delivered on a fairly regular basis what he is supposed to do, score goals. Jokinen was a big disappointment the first time, but adequate the second time as he actually learned how to play a role instead of being a top line guy. I loved Titov back in the day, but only because we had so little else back then to be happy with.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Voted Titov just because I liked his name. I'd rather have 2 #12's and get rid of #13.

I liked what Cammy's done here, he was a great role model for the young ones. Hopefully he can find success in NJ.

I always liked Titov and hoped he would be better than he was here...but in a way, that can be said about all 3 of these guys. However Cammy did have that one, 39 goal season where things just clicked, so I have to go with him.

Although Jokinen deserves a vote just for the flying hamburger gif.

And he was a "best player outside of the NHL" signing that worked out.

I think he still lives in Calgary too.

I had to go with Cammalleri, but I think a case could be made for all 3.

Titov was the only one not to come back after being traded away once right ?
3 players that were supposed to push us to the next level and didn't . Liked all of them but Titov performed the best given the circumstances .I prefer not to talk about the Young Guns Era

Went with Titov. To this day I have never seen a player get hit so hard multiple times game after game and just jump up like nothing had happened.

Seriously the guy was as tough as they come.

Titov. Way better player than Cammalleri but played for one of the worst teams in Flames history. Would be worshipped today for his skill, tenacity and character.

I wouldn't be suprised if the guy had multiple concussions. But it was back in the day where a guy would just get up and skate it off.

Agreed, gritty warrior of a player.

I still voted Cammy though.

Went with Squid. You guys realize that Titov played on some pretty good teams here, right? The 94 and 95 squads were division champs. Yeah he played at the very beginning of the dark era (97 and 98), but majority of his time here was on some good teams (Great '94 Team) that just always unperformed come playoff time.

You what it is? I just never considered Cammalleri a "Flame" - he always struck me as a carpet-bagger.
