I agree Smyl was great but not amazing.

Retiring someone's number should be reserved for guys who were amazing. Also, on ice should come before anything else.

By letting in Smyl, Linden, and to a lesser extent Naslund, you open the door to the Sedins and Luongo who all have had more individual and team success than any of the aforementioned three players with retired jerseys.

Bure should be the low standard for a jersey retirement not the only one of four in the HHOF.
