I totally agree that having Messier retired in NY without having Bathgate, Cook and Boucher is a bit of incoherence. Unfortunately they waited for so long that it become hard to do so since that even the average Rangers fan thinks that Bill Cook is a new coffe shop line.

From what I've seen this year, Coffey's ceremony was probably the best. Cournoyer and Moore also had a very good night.

Is there any jersey retirement left this year exept the Geoffrion's one? I heard MacInnis will be honored but I do not remember if they do it this season.

Buffalo retired Gare's #18, it was a good ceremony, not alot of fanfare, but alot of class. I really want to see how Lafotaine's ceremony will be handled in March. Even stranger will be Dom's ceremony in a few years. It may take 10-15 years for the sting of how he left to finally cool off.
