Look at the bolds above.

This sums up everything wrong with this thread, and the lack of knowledge of history, and the greatness that are the Montreal Canadiens, on this board.

Le Club de Hockey Canadien retires the number of a player at their own discretion.

It has nothing to do with you or me, or anyone else. They are a private Hockey club, and they set their own standards.

People like you will ruin this privacy, because you insist on being involved, and you're such an important FAN.

Facebook generation: We know BEST! We NEED to have a SAY! It's all about US!

Know your boundaries. You are a fan, not a member to the Club De Hockey Canadien. They don't care about your opinion. And they should not.
