He'll likely never win a Hart Trophy with the Flyers but, if the team bags a couple of championships, I could see Philly entertain the thought of retiring his number.
By no means would it be a lock, though.
In fairness, I will also never own the jersey of a player the Flyers didn't draft and/or acquire before he made the NHL. I appreciate guys when they are here, but don't like the split legacy (part of what irks me about Gagne...). For example, Roenick was great while he was here... but he's a Blackhawk.
