Pelle was great no doubt. However it was explained to me by my coach so many years ago what do you say to so many other Flyers greats?

It's a slippery slope if you choose <then or now> to retire his number.

Guess I was angry at the time and it never made sense to me. Now, however many years later it does. What the team has done is perfect in my eyes. The number 31 is Pelle's forever. He doesn't need some piece of orange cloth in the rafters to tell us that.
