He's #13 all-time in points as a Hab with 591 points. I'd say his number gets retired for sure if he passes Steve Shutt's 776 points and moves into 8th all-time. So 186 points more.

Why? Off ice contribution to Montreal. Perseverance. Just look at the names he'll be around:

1. Guy Lafleur
2. Jean Beliveau
3. Henri Richard
4. Maurice "Rocket" Richard
5. Larry Robinson
6. Yvan Cournoyer
7. Jacques Lemaire
8. Steve Shutt
9. Bernie "Boom-Boom" Geoffrion
10. Elmer Lach

If he can get 186 more points and maybe wins a cup with us, I can't see people disagreeing if his number gets retired. Just imo
