Personally I wish they let Gino Odjick keep #66 after his rookie year. It would have made a great "deal with it" gif.
I have a feeling the Flames heard from the league about Brody as the Canucks allegedly did in 91. It would make more sense back then though, when Mario was such a heavily marketed player. I don't see a move being made to retire #66 in the entire league though, that opens up a can of worms of retroactively honouring other players. Mario wore an uncommon number so it's not too tricky, but couldn't one argue if Mario deserves the honour, 4 and 9 should be retired too.
Sometimes wearing the number of an old icon is a tribute. If somebody wants to channel Super Mario when they play, I say let them.
