Personally I thought Gretzky's retirement game (and really the whole several days before, with opposing teams lining up to shake his hand when the rumors about him retiring started circulating) was one of the finest moments I've seen. Everything was really well done, from bringing out Messier, Lemieux, and Gretzky's other buddies before the game, to retiring his number league-wide, to the national anthems (which I usually don't care for) adding Gretzky references, to the long send-off after the game. And unlike Jordan, Lemieux, etc. he never cheapened it by coming out of retirement afterwards.
