sad to say the stud Gary Roberts has finally chose to end his 22-season career.

…I really wish Calgary would have been able to take Roberts to the playoffs this season… i really thought it would happen, but then you have to look at the big names and the salary cap….

Roberts rode with the Flames in ’89 all the way to the Stanley Cup… a game six victory in Montreal… the only visiting Cup victory in Montreal by the way… of course Lanny McDonald got the fitting game winner.72466461BB013_Legends_Class

Roberts was the first round pick for the Flames in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft and played a hell of a bout for the Flames. lotsa years. lotsa games.

anyhow… i’m still kind of surprised that the Flames didn’t pick him up for the ride this season. I guess the Olli deal was the closer.
