I want to also pose this question. Suppose Jagr somehow had propelled us to a Cup in his 4 years here (the year we lost to Buffalo was probably our best shot), would his number be a consideration?
If Jags won a Cup during his time here, I'd say yes, definitely. It begs the question of what a retired number is meant to represent: production over tenure...or impact on the franchise.
