Graves is a legend here, on and off the ice. Not to mention, 9 would of and should have been gone besides Graves. Might as well retire 11. Nobody would have worn 11 in NY Blue anyway. Same with 35. No issues with the retired numbers. Of the group they have now, it will be #30 next. Nobody else, as of yet, has distinguished themselves to be of that level. Team is too young to have those type of questions.
