What has Beezer done to deserve a jersey retirement? The league would run out of numbers pretty quickly if every goalie that lead their team to the SC-finals had their number retired.
And no one is saying that Weiss would get that #9 if he left or retired due to injury now. It's if he ends up staying here for his whole career, which would be about +15 years. You think over 15 years of loyal service to the team isn't worth to have Weiss's jersey retired, but yet you'd retire Beezer's #34 because of one cup run and a few seasons here?
I seriously hope this franchise doesn't turn into a total joke that retires players just because they were good.
