The one thing no one has been able to define is the parameters for retiring a number.

An argument against Park is that he only played a little over 7 years. So, how many years is necessary?

The hardware argument is flat-out stupid because he was against the greatest player I ever saw. If no Orr, Park has a bag full of trophies. How can that be held against Park?

If talent as a Ranger is a point to consider, he is at worst the second best talent of the last 50 seasons.

So, does anyone have a set of rules to determine who deserves it? The answer is no.

The single most overrated reason cited is winning a Cup. This Is idiotic. I used to hear that argument used to say that Hasek was not great enough as a Sabre or Boutique great enough as a Bruin.

The truth is that this is all about opinions and we are all using different facts as an argument.

One thing indisputable is that Park was a far, far better player as a Ranger than Graves. Anyone who saw Park knows this to be true. Once Graves got a banner, it all ceased to have real meaning.
