No harm in really recognizing some of the greats who played during that time, I think Howe really deserves it, he's criminally underrated.
I don't necessarily disagree, but it's abundantly clear where the organizations priorities lie, and I would be shocked to see a player who doesn't win the cup as a Flyer get his number retired by this team.
