However, if the Bruins didn't retire Thompson or Brimsek's number Thomas has ZERO chance of getting 30 retired nor should Cheevers. Chara is a lock to get his number retired, every captain who won a Cup has their number retired starting with Lionel Hitchman who wasn't a top defender in his era. Chara is one of the best defencemen of his era and is a lock for the HOF.
Good points. They all have zero chance, if we're talking reality. The next will be Chara and then prob Bergeron...No doubt. Cold truth.

...I'm embarassed to say I don't know anything about Cowley. I'll have to look him up. Sucks how some guys slip through the cracks.
