Down Goes Brown: what if every team had to do all-time protected lists?

Personally, I have to put Kipper on there over Vernon.

Would be cool to do this with specific years of players, e.g. 2001-02 Iggy.

Calgary Flames

In theory, this also includes the Atlanta Flames, but nobody from that era makes the cut. To nobody’s surprise, this team will be dominated by players from the team’s late-’80s golden age.

Forwards: Jarome Iginla, Theo Fleury, Joe Nieuwendyk, Gary Roberts, Kent Nilsson, Lanny McDonald, Johnny Gaudreau

Defencemen: Al MacInnis, Gary Suter, Mark Giordano

Goalie: Mike Vernon

Toughest omissions: Miikka Kiprusoff is the franchise leader in games and wins, but Vernon’s Cup run trumps him. Meanwhile, we found room for Gaudreau but not Sean Monahan, and Joey Mullen also misses the cut.
