The last time I ran the numbers in 2011, Legwand was the median performing second forward selected in a draft from 1990 on when comparing average points per game. There is what people expect, then there is reality. Everyone wants career point per game players on their roster ... those average about one per draft class going back to 1990. We all want teams full of 20 goal scorers every season ... the league gets 120-130 of them per full season.

Given where Legwand stands in team statistics and his status as the first selection by the Preds in an entry draft, the odds are good his number gets honored by the team in some way if he retires after playing for only us. If he leaves before ending his career, who knows ... my guess is the team probably still honors him after retirement as long as he doesn't pull a Suter on his way out the door.
