I think N.backstrom who plays in capitals should honour that decision about Gretz number. Do he thinks that he can live up to that number, i wonder?
Different league, doesn't matter.

In fact I never liked the league retiring his number the way it did. It took away some of the specialness of the Oilers/Kings retiring it.

The only upside for me is pointing out to friends who cheer for other teams that the best player their team has the number retired for never played for them.
