I was gonna say Mike Vernon also. He got a ring there and had 260 or so wins, so that would kind of make HIM their best goalie, one would think. I was kind of joking about him being a quitter. But he sure could have gotten them a good player if he allowed himself to be traded to a contender and THEN retired once the season was over.
The thing is, the guy has a family and he didn't want to move them especially not to a place with a ton of scrutiny going on (i.e. Toronto). Some people would be raging about him no matter what (quitter for not sticking through the rebuild or not allowing the Flames to trade him..not signing an extension...whatever) players are humans too and they have a damn right to take a family first approach.
