Robyn Regehr was one of the best Calgary Flames in history.
He was acquired for Theoren Fleury. He played 826 games for the Flames between 1999 and his 2011 departure to Buffalo. He won his first Stanley Cup this weekend, as the Los Angeles Kings beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in a thrilling double-OT Game 5.
If you skim the Flames franchise games-played leaders, the only player remaining in the top 10 that doesn’t have a Cup win is the guy on top.
And I suppose Craig Conroy doesn’t have a ring yet either…
Also, big congrats to the Jolly Rancher himself, Darryl Sutter, on his second Stanley Cup win in the past three years. He’s every bit as good a coach as he was, at the end, a panicky and reactionary general manager.
