No, I don't... due to the relatively low amount of achievements, largely based on his inability to raise them because of his untimely death... and the nature of that death... I, as well as many others I've read/heard, believe the Flyers will never officially retire the number, but it will never be issued again in this Organization, IMO.
Had he lived and played longer or had he put up numbers that could not be denied, there might be an argument... but as it is, it would be hard for the Flyers to reward his lack of judgement and dangerous actions with such a major acknowledgement (officially).
