In spite of all his injuries and illnesses, Saku was clearly the best Habs player in the last 13 years. During one of the darkest period in Habs' history, he was a second-line center playing on a first line. It's not his fault if the Habs' brass couldn't acquire better players during all those years. He certainly did his darn best but his production on the ice will be barely enough to qualify him for the Hall of Fame. Jacques Lemaire and Elmer Lach, both in the HOF, are more deserving centers to eventually get their numbers retired but we have to draw the line somewhere.
