It baffles me how the Caps haven't retired Peter Bondra's #12 yet.

I doubt Niedermayer gets his retired before Jiggy gets his. Honestly, I would love if all 3 of them got their numbers retired at the same night, even if the 3 only ever played together during the 2000-2001 season. (Selanne/Kariya/Guigere; Kariya/Selanne; Kariya/Guigere; Selanne/Guigere)

But again, not everyone is a fan of Kariya..

As a Blackhawk fan I think Wilson and Larmer should have gotten their's retired. I personally think #3 was retired was because of Magnuson's tragic death and they included Pilote (certainly deserving by the way) to avoid any kind of backlash from Pilote's family. About a million guys wore #3 after those 2 retired. Chelios' #7 could've been perhaps but Seabrook has worn that number so long now so does that constitute another Magnuson/Pilote type number retirement?

from what i've heard, the ducks have been ready for a while now to basically "welcome" kariya back to the organization but paul is the one who's against it for the time being because he feels like the fans wouldn't welcome him back. the fact that he was at the ducks last regular season game is a pretty big step but his return is long overdue and to still hold a grudge against the guy 10 years later is just silly

it's a shame because he was our first superstar and deserves nothing more than to have his jersey retired. i'm hoping he and teemu can get their jerseys retired on the same night, teemu is the kind of guy who would want that to happen more than anyone else and it's only fitting that they go up together. but if kariya remains out of the loop i expect the order to be selanne, jiggy, and MAYBE scotty

I hope the Flyers retire Lindros' #88. He's what turned me on to hockey growing up, and I view him as a franchise icon.

I hope Zubov's #56 as well. He never got the respect he deserved

As others have mentioned, Red Kelly in Detroit is a big one. Then again, Mike Ilitch chose to un-retire Aurie's number, which is something very unusual to see in sports.

Lindros will be retired eventually. Just like time healed the Bure wound in Vancouver.

Speaking of Vancouver, any chance they retire Messier's number?

Maybe Illitch wanted to keep a high standard for jersey retirement (HOF induction maybe) and Aurie didn't fit the bill so he decided to unretire the number?

Maybe, but it was very unprofessional and a slap in the face to Aurie's family. I don't think Ilich has ever publicly explained the reasons for the move.

If I become the Avalanche owner (yikes) I wouldn't remove Bourque's jersey because I didn't think he deserves to be there. It would just be a dick move at that point.

Yeah, at no point should you unretire a number. It's rude and it creates quite an awkward situation with the family of the affected person. The only reason you can unretire a number IMO is if the person turned out to be a crook (murder, fraud... something big), or you unretire all the numbers.

it's crazy the islanders never retired pat lafontaine's number. anyone in the hall of fame based at least half on the work he did for a particular team should have his number retired.

a decent case could also be made for other dynasty guys, primarily john tonelli.

Toe Blake-6 should be retired for the Montreal Canadiens since a long time! He won a Hart trophy (1939), a Scoring Title (1939), a Lady Bing (1946) and 2 Stanley Cups (1944-1946). He was the captain of the team during 8 seasons and won 8 more Cups has a coach (1956-1957-1958-1959-1960-1965-1966-1968)

i would love love love for the canucks to retire pat quinn's #3 this season, obviously not for his contributions as a player. and i'm sure both kevin bieksa (current wearer of that number) and doug lidster (the longest-serving and highest scoring wearer of that number, now canucks assistant coach) would applaud that decision and be honoured to participate in the ceremony.

When he retires, do the Penguins officially retire Jagr's number?


(Even if they don't cant imagine them ever letting anybody pick it)

Nice thought, sentiment. Would be a nice thing to do, agree..... and great shot. Thats Gary Jarrett then with the Seals, one-time Leafs property like Pat Quinn and former team mates with the 1964/65 Tulsa Oilers of the CPHL.

No one else has worn this number in Pittsburgh, but this could be an interesting case vis a vis when it gets retired (not if). It has been a long time since Jagr left Pittsburgh, and I would hope any acrimony has died down. He is second to Lemieux in just about everything (although Sidney Crosby may push Jagr down to third when all is said and done).
