Bure's accomplishments should've made him a lock for the HHOF. But as I said earlier, retiring a team jersey number should also include things you did for the community
*off the ice*.
I don't have a problem with Naslund's number being retired because of this. And it's hardly like Smyl's hockey stats (while technically being the best on a bad team; it was fairly medicore with respect to the rest of the league). Sure Naslund's last few years were fairly awful; but he was for several years one of the most lethal goal scorers in the entire league.
