Truth of the matter is the standards were set a long time ago, to loosen them now would be sacrilege in the eyes of many(myself included). I for one, am against it. Place him in the ring of honor, erect a statue to commemorate the most deserving Masterton trophy winner ever. Do not, however, tell me that he stands on his body of work, cancer aside, with this storied team's greats.
He was arguably the best player on really bad teams, does this warrant a number being retired?
Where's all the hardware that the others have won?
If you are from a generation where medals were awarded for participation perhaps he merits consideration. I for one don't think so.
guys like Houle, Lupien, Bouchard Tremblay and co are thanking Lafleur and the big 3 every morning for the hardware they won...
I have yet to see you call them for what they were, wich is -> average players at best.
