Goaltending is immensely important in hockey.
Good goaltending can cover up a lot, but nothing can make up for bad goaltending. In the history of the Calgary Flames, there have been a few really bad goalies and a few really good ones. Here's our list of the five net-minders that we determined to the very best in franchise history.

We are getting down to the final days of training camp and as Arii pointed out this morning, things are getting mighty tight as far as roster spots are concerned. Today, we are going to play a fun game of 'guess the specific totals' of the Flames Dmen for next season. I will set the number in a category specific to each Flames defender and you all have to guess whether their totals will be over or under that total.
You can gamble using your Flamesnation bucks, which, as you probably already know, you earn every time you trash a comment left by an Oiler fan. 2,500 Flamesnation bucks gets you a massage from the one and only Byron Bader!*

#Flames announce they’ve summoned Kenny Morrison and Patrick Sieloff back from the AHL Stockton Heat.— Randy Sportak (@SUNRandySportak) September 30, 2015
Only a few days after re-assigning them to the farm, Calgary has recalled defenders Kenny Morrison and Pat Sieloff. It's a somewhat curious reversal, so the question is...what's up?

The Stockton Heat began their training camp on Monday.
The camp roster featured the usual suspects of players dealing with the let-down of being assigned to the AHL club from an NHL camp along with fringe pros trying their best to catch on with a new club and keep their dreams of ice hockey stardom alive.
And then there's a small group of players that entered camp without uncertainty, owing to the fact that because they're on American Hockey League contracts with the Heat, they're virtually guaranteed to stick around that team for the season.
I chatted with two of them last week at Flames main camp.

The Flames have a problem: they have way, way too many waiver-eligible forwards.
Let's talk specifically about Brandon Bollig.
