If Markov retired tomorrow, would you want the Habs to retire his number?

I know Koivu's accomplishments are more impressive because of his battles with health, and he Captain the Habs worst days in history. But I don't think that warrants a jersey retirement. I'm all for a unique and special way to commemorate him, a plate, trophy, wtv new idea they have..
He had one season where he was above a point per game. He never had any real accomplishment of any kind. He was nowhere near an exceptional player in the league. But he was here a really long time and sometimes we even made the playoffs with him.
So ladies and gentlemen, please welcome.... Saku Koivu."
Yeah, I don't think so.
Shutt, Lapointe... sure. Even Guy Carbonneau I could get behind though I don't think that would be right either. Forget Koivu and Markov though. It would really cheapen the honour.
