No and never. Shouldn't even have done the Rob Blake Alumni Night.

That hit on Mueller pissed me off and it sucks that he got hurt but Blake was one of the best defensemen in the league when he played for us and he helped us win a Stanley Cup. He shouldn't get his jersey retired but it's good that they honored him earlier this season. He averaged 50 points per season with us, now days our forwards can barely hit that mark.
I would rather honour Ozolinsh or Kamensky before Blake tbh, maybe Tanguay too. I'm not completely against it but it feels too much like looking back at the glory days with a guy who was on the team for 4 yrs and 1 cup.
Nope. I don't think Hejduk or Foote's should be retired either.
I think the Avs should start honoring jerseys. Put them up in the rafters. Give them their night. But don't retire the jerseys unless they are hall of fame players, who have spent significant time with the Avs.
Honoring jerseys absolutely, I dont like retiring though. As if 300 years from now, someone's gonna know who Sakic, Forsberg or Foote were. Retiring for all eternity doesnt make any sense to me. Honoring, yes.
