I just blew a huge hole in your criteria that you think most NHL teams use to retire jersey #s. Besides, that was only a small list as there are plenty of others who also aren't elite or HHOF worthy yet have their numbers retired. Sorry but what you use as a criteria is NOT what most NHL clubs use.

Try again, kiddo.
Graves is no sure selection over Nystrom. It's an arguable point. Not sure who I would have taken.
