You're absolutely right
That's what the ring of honor is for, (such as the rightful place of Roy)

To the OP, not going to comment on your team, their history or lack of greatness.
Some very special players have worn the red white and blue. The same individuals bled red white and blue, and the best of them have their numbers up in the rafters.
In buffalo's short existence they have retired 6 numbers, so let me ask you; what if we un-retire perrault/martin/robert?
Or better yet lafontaine?

Perhaps it will fly in Buffalo, but in Montreal as a previous poster mentioned its sacrilege!!
