Flames screw over MacInnis with 'Ring of Honour' equivalent

But it is humbling remembering that not that many years ago, our organization was a mess too.

No cuz mg wanted to honor bure and he declined. Plus he didn't win a cup or con smyth
A ring of honor for Bure is an insult to someone that made the NHL hall of fame and was the greatest player this team has ever had.
Also if you want to compare in terms of a Cup or Conn Smyth, Smyl, Linden and Naslund never won those either
Favorite all time Canuck: Bertuzzi 2002-2003 season
Most clutch all time Canuck: Linden 1994 Stanley Cup Playoffs
Most exciting all time Canuck: Pavel Bure 90's

1274 career points... 160 more in the playoffs... A Cup in Calgary... Perennial All-Star... How is his number not retired?
And why was Lanny McDonald's #9 retired in Calgary, again?
His number was retired for his mustache alone.
Actually, McDonald was a star for the Flames in the 80s, and even had a 66 goal season. It wasn't the cup-winning goal he scored, but the insurance marker in the final game of their cup win.
But anyways, MacInnis should have his number retired in Calgary.

Remember it was a time when paying a player over a million was still very new and you had to pay in American dollars. Calgary couldn't match the lucrative deal (and Al would have been a fool to say no) The only problem was the parting interview when he spoke the damming words "It's not about the money"
As for Lanny, how could his number not be retired? He was the face of their franchise.
I was saying Lu-Urns...

AHL team that plays in Calgary
You mean the ECHL team right?
There is also an ECHL team called the mapleleafs.

On top of that, even if he hadn't won the Conn Smythe, MacInnis's long tenure in Calgary and his litany of achievements in a Flame Jersey should also warrant a Jersey retirement. For comparison's sake, Al had 841 points with the Flames (as a DEFENSEMAN), more than Naslund, Linden, or Smyl had with Vancouver as forwards (756, 733, and 673 respectively).
So yeah, retiring his jersey should almost be a no-brainer. However, it must not be a no-brainer, because it wasn't a move that Flames' management was qualified to make.
