Team is too young to have those type of questions.
Messier was only elite for a period of 4 years with the Rangers.

The fact that we are justifying Graves' for his actions off the ice speaks volumes on why it's a joke his number is up there.

Richter only 3 all star appearances, no major individual hardware, it's like EDM retiring Ranford's number or DRW retiring Osgood's number.

The Rangers should honor these players for sure, but not in terms of jersey retirement imo.
