The Calgary Flames have always been known for their physical "in your face" brand of hockey. It has been a style that has brought them success of late, despite not having the most talented team.
Even in their days while based in Atlanta, the Flames have been large and aggressive. In fact, Chicago Blackhawks great Stan Mikita once said after playing against them, "It was like skating in a forest of giant redwoods."
While the franchise is known for being all of these things, they have always seemed to find a talented small player or two that has brought a different dimension to the club—some small trees amongst the giant redwoods. This season it has been Nigel Dawes, and last year it was Michael Cammalleri.
While Calgary has been in a bit of a slump going into the Christmas break, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the Calgary Flames versions of the famous children's story "the Littlest Christmas Tree" , and count down just who was the best pound for pound.
