    I know I'm watching:



    I wasn't from AB originally but I lived in Lethbridge all through the 80s and saw all the highs and lows of the Flames (as a fan no less!) from the demoralizing losses to the Oilers and things like Gretzky's friggin' slap shot over Vernon's shoulder to finally overcoming them thanks to Steve Smith only to get beat by a rookie Patrick Roy. But mostly I'll NEVER forget the 1989 Cup run. The standoffs between Otto and Messier, Tikkanen making fun of Hunter's nose, McDonald and Peplinski's weird red pajama tops on the bench, the fact that Montreal looked like a bunch of black-haired clones, Claude Lemieux douche-baggin' it up big time in Game 6.

    Best hockey ever. Enjoy!

    Flames don't win without Gilmour. He was amazing. Probably one of the most underrated players in NHL history. He is top 20 player of all time. No doubt. Flames lose that series if they dont have gilmour

    He was dealing with some serious allegations that year too. Only reason we got him from St. Louis.

    This was good:


    Gilmour was indeed great in the '89 playoffs, but maybe more so late in the Finals than the whole run (he didn't do much against Vancouver, for example -- they might have won that series faster if he'd been all in). Flames won in '89 by committee.
