It would have been really nice to have a retirement in 05 to continue this tradition. Also, I think the Habs realize they may never again be such a powerhouse and they might as well take their time because it could take a looong time before new heroes wear this jersey.

Hockey players today in general have no loyalty. They're spoiled brats. In a way, this is going to allow the Habs to celebrate a time when there were heroes and glory days. It's kind of cool and a luxury very few teams have.

I have no doubt that this not an injustice. Everybody knows Larry should and will have his jersey retired. It's just a matter of time, I think. I think for sure we will see one, possibly two retirements in the next 10 years.
You make excellent points but I'm not so concerend with the wait.... my orginial concern when I created this thread was whether robinson would be recognized at all... and judging from the rersponse here, he will eventually be honoured.
