The problem is that the original Ottawa Senators are a completely different franchise from the current one. The original Sens moved to St. Louis in 1934 and folded shortly thereafter. What you're proposing is akin to the Saskatchewan Rough Riders wanting to retire jersey numbers from guys playing on the Ottawa Rough Riders.
