Retiring numbers should be reserved for the absolute elite and nothing else. Lafleur, Richards, Roy, Plante, Harvey, etc. I know Gainey was one of the better defensive forwards the NHL has seen, I just think his number being retired while he is GM just reaks.

Montreal spends too much time admiring its past rather than trying to fix the present and future, or at least was true during the Gainey era and hopefully this is going to change. The past 20 years could effectively be called the "Je me souviens" era.
