I've been a supporter of retiring Hasek's number. No matter how his time here ended, it's been a long time since then and he's one of the best players, if not the best player, to ever play for the Buffalo Sabres. Totally deserving of the honor despite what he said when he was shipped out.

I'd imagine the banner would be blue and gold. Although I wouldn't be opposed to the red and black since those were our sweaters during his best seasons here and they were the ones worn when we went to the SCF in 98-99.

As for his appearance, you never know, they might surprise us and retire it then. I would be surprised though. Something like this should come with more notice and I would think they would have announced it months before, like Brind'Amour's and Naslund's this year were in Carolina and Vancouver respectively.
