I think you have that the wrong way.

Park's wasn't retired...

but if you combine Park's and Leetch's efforts, the jersey #2 deserves to be hung and not worn again. Park only played 8 seasons, and was part of an infamous trade - perhaps a couple reasons why his number was not retired. But, it'll be years before that number is retired as I'm guessing Leetch ain't hanging them up any time soon.

I don't know how many people here saw Brad Park play but he was a great player and arguably for the time he played in (a 12 team league) of the stature of Leetch (when I started following the Rangers he was without any doubt in my mind the second best defenseman in the league behind only Orr) Conn Smythe trophy/Stanley Cup or not. Whatever---I don't think anyone will wear that number again.
I'm all for retiring the number but it would be a nice gesture if it were done for both players.
