So I think it speaks to a larger issue that the Leafs should come up with a better way to respect players of the past and actually retire players who are icons to the club.

The fact that its okay for someone else to come in and wear #13, makes me think if Kadri wants the number, he should get it. If on the other hand everyone feels that nobody should ever wear that number again, then the organization should make it official and actually retire all the numbers in the rafters not just honour them.
I'd say ask the players. If it was my number, I'd care less if someone else wore it. In most cases, odds are it's because they respect you that they want to wear it.
