I would say Yes because he is a great hockey player and in 1990-91 he had a total of 104 points with the flames. They should retire his jersey.

HABS RULE!!

Yes I believe so, he was a star on the team for years. Brought a cup home and one of the franchise's leading scorers.

Abso"fricken"lootly. Prior to the Iginla era, Fleury was the heart and soul of the flames and the fact that he is now #2 in points to Iginla without any of Iginla's physical gifts, is telling of how much this little big man did for the Flames.

I am assuming anyone reading this column actually seen Fleury play for the Flames or the Olympics. Forget the alcohol for a second here, this guy is most definitly an unbelievable overachiever. He should never have stood out in a crowd, but ended up being a cut above player wise, while a member of the flames.

Retire Theoren Fleury's jersey ? please, this should be saved for outstanding achievement only. He's not quite there.

The Flames WILL retire Fleury's #14. It was his play that kept the Flames IN Calgary during the bad years in the mid to late 90's. Really at that time he was the inspiration for all the struggling teams in Canada. The little guy who could do it. Facing the American dollar and many losing seasons, Calgary owes it to Theo.

I don't necessarily think that his number should be retired. Arguably one of the best players in Flames history. His number IMO will definitely be lifted to the rafters and honoured. Retired? well its is possible.

All I can say is either you dont know, or your standards are too high. When are else looked grim on the Calgary Flames, Theo was a point producing Phenom for Calgary. He the only reason half of the fans came to the games. Even I cheered for the Flames as underdogs.

If Linden is worthy for the Canucks then Theo is worthy for the Flames IMHO.

wow almost 300 less games played for fleury compared to linden yet still beats him in points by a good 200 points. about 100 more goals too. also he has 1000 more penalty minutes which means less time on ice so the fact that he has 200 more points than linden is pretty good.
