How the hell would they retire the number of a player who never has had a number in the organization? When all is said and done, it is unlikely the Rangers will retire the number of Boogaard. But Boogaard has at least worn the jersey.
Given that there is such an unusual number, it is not very likely that someone will want that number in the near future, and it will not be necessary to retire it. I do not think I would have chosen a number with the history attached to it. Not by any form of superstition, but of respect. But I'm also feeling that it would not be wrong if the number was retired.
