Martin Gelinas scored that controversial no-goal in 2004 in the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Cliff Fletcher the only General Manager for the Flames to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
In 1988, Martin Gelinas drafted by the Los Angeles Kings who was part of the trade that sent Wayne Gretzky from Edmonton to LA less than two months later. Fun fact: He was taken at seventh overall.
The ten player trade sent Doug Gilmour, Jamie Macoun, Kent Manderville, Ric Nattress, and Rick Wamsley to Toronto and sent Craig Berube, Alexander Godynyuk, Gary Leeman, Michel Petit, and Jeff Reese to Calgary.
