Still an attention-starved prima donna.

Get over it Sergei. You wouldn't have won anything without the Red Wings.

EDIT: Sergei couldn't hold Stevie's jock as a player or especially as a human being.

So, anyone still curious if Feds will get his number retired in Detroit?


Why wouldn't they retire one of their best forwards ever? It's like asking if Pittsburgh will ever retire Jagr's number. It will happen. Just give it time.

Don't hold your breath. Mr. Ilitch isn't going to send 91 to the JLA rafters.

You don't think he'll want another Hall-of-Fame Red Wings player in Toronto and on that ceiling of Joe Louis Arena?

Then he has to send up Shanny and Chelios by that logic.

I can understand Fedorov's position, as it clearly was the Red Wings holding him back all these years, and if you look over his career in the NHL, those years in Detroit really stick out like a sore thumb and are an ugly blight on his record.


Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

goal.gif and the Joe sold 3.000 more tickets each night when she was sitting up in the owner's box...so Fedorov had the best looking girlfriend in Detroits history and he is very handsome himself...so that was why everyone was jealous of him...especially Steve Yzerman....Fedorov was also ten times a better player than Yzerman...sad situation was that Fed had to live in Yzerman's shadow because he is Russian goal.gif


You're kidding, right? I'm pretty sure there was like a 7 year waiting list for season tickets at that time. Wait, I know there was a 7 year waiting list because a friend inquired about season tickets and waited until 2004 when he finally had the chance to purchase them. Give me a break, 3,000 people weren't going to see Anna. This is the NHL, not the god damn NBA where people go to see movie stars and supermodels instead of the game.

Do you see Red Kelly up in those rafters? He would go up there long before Feds, which appears to be never.

38 former Red Wings players are currently in the Hall of Fame. If that's your only criteria for number retirement, then we're going to have to start using punctuation marks before too long. 38 HOF'ers, and only 6 of them have a retired number.

To me, Yzerman and Lidstrom have set the current standard for jersey retirement. When you compare Yzerman's and Lidstrom's contributions against Fedorov's, then Sergei doesn't measure up. (And I'm not talking just about stats and awards won).

If the current standard is those heart and soul, bleed Red Wings Red, exemplary career spent entirely wearing the Winged Wheel, while winning the hearts and minds of the fans. Then no, Fedorov does not meet the standard. Many of the fans still would boo Fedorov when he came back to the Joe. Do you really think Ilitch wants to retire the number of a guy who got booed on a regular occasion after he left?

The guy compared leaving Detroit to when he defected from the Soviet Union, for crying out loud. Even if that was all taken out of context, it still leaves a sour taste in many people's mouth. Put all these reasons together, mix in his holdout in '98, sprinkle a little of this article on top, bake at 350 degrees and it all adds up to 91's absence in the rafters, if you ask me.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Red Kelly was twice the player for Detroit than Fedorov was (and I have little problem with retiring Fedorov's number, in reality... despite his prima-donna attitude at times).

Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Wow, I really think Feds was upset, eh? This hurts Feds, this hurts. What's next, does he call this place De-Toilet? Nothing like stabbing yours fans to death!

Bring Fedorov Home For A Day!

 

He Needs To Retire A Red Wing.

Nicely done, Sergei.

Maybe the Blue Jackets can retire your number instead.

This is the same ass-backwards logic that got Bourque's number retired in Colorado.

I guess I had forgotten what a strange need for attention Sergei has.

Yeah out of the current players Lids is the only for sure and if Z and Dats win 2 more cups then they could be put in the rafters. Feds has no chance, stats and talent wise no argument but his attitude and baggage are what keeps him out.
