Weight's #39 deserves to be honored by the Oilers as will Ryan Smyth's #94. So does Kevin Lowe's #4 (based solely on his playing days). I'm sure there will be others. Perhaps the move to the new arena can coincide with the unveiling of an 'honored number' display of some kind for non-hall-of-famers whose contributions as Oilers' players (including #3 Al Hamilton) were exceptional. These jersey #s would be available to current players but only with the blessing of the honoree. HHoF members' #s would remain retired.
