I think if it's not Phillips, it'll be Heatley. He'll retire before Spezza, should play out most of his career here, set some team records, score a cup or two, etc.

He's my pick, for sure. It looks like there's a good chance he'll play his whole career here, and hopefully win a Cup or two

Plus, he's likely to retire before any of the guys on that list.

Daigle, and then Yashin.

On a serious note, if Heatley continues his pace and stays with the Senators (gaining a few Cups or so), he would be a good candidate.

Redden and Phillips would be good candidates as well.

It'll only be Phillips if he ends up with the "C" and the team wins a few Cups.

You pretty much have to be a franchise player to get your number retired, and as solid as Phillips is, it'll have to be due to his leadership qualities as well.

If not, Heatley.

Phillips is steady, but doesn't have the astounding numbers or talents that are required for retirement. Heatley's the only one from the current roster that stands a chance, but he's going to have to meet all expectations (which includes delivering at least one cup), and sign a contract or two that sees him retire a Senator, or close to it.

I really hope Alfie's number isn't retired if he doesn't lead us to a cup.

There's often exceptions to that rule for "unsung hero" kind of types, but it seems that happens only if the guy plays his entire career for that team. I'm thinking Thomas Steen in Winnipeg and Ken Daneyko in Jersey.

If Phillips plays his whole career here, he'll likely be the captain when Alfie retires, and hopefully have a Cup win under his belt. If that's the case, I think they should definitely retire his jersey.

Even some important players that have lead teams to many cups don't have their numbers retired. Retiring a number is a huge deal they will not give to anyone (obviously).

I say the next player to get his jersey retire will be a player that has played many years with the team, has involment in the community, has played an important role in the success of the team and is a personnality that represents the essence of the team.

If Heater maintains an elite level and plays the next 6 years with this team (and more), brings us a cup or high success, then so far he has the best shot.

Phillips could also be a choice, but being that he is an underated player that isn't as "flashy" in the community, I don't see it happening.

Oddly enough, I picked Fisher (perhaps I would change my mind, but here is my reasoning). Now, he IS a fan favorite and a lot of us are high on him, but he is a player that is an example in the community, will have been around for a long time and is one of the players that most represents our franchise. Hard work and determination. Heatley and Spezza will probably do the same, but they are both at their beginnings.

That being said about all these great players, I don't see any of them having their jerseys retired just yet, unless we win a cup or continue to reach the finals or the highest levels, because of the magnitude of having a jersey retired. If we retired every successful, career Sen (if Fisher, Philipps, etc, stay career Sens), not many numbers would be available in the next 50 years!
