Not sure where thread has reached now(haven't read the posts) but Markov doesn't deserve it retired.

If Markov spent his next 5 years with us and finished his career with the habs then I'd say he deserves a plaque and some kind of recognition because in new NHL that's not common. Some kind of "thank you" that's legit.

Koivu is in about same boat but he helped the city more and also was captain for such a long time. I'd be cool with a markov stuff+.

Neither gets number retired though. If Koivu stayed here his whole career and stayed captain, he'd have a better chance as he'd be far and away longest serving captain but otherwise, nah...even though I love Saku.
