Lids is a given. He's all that and a bucket of cheese. There is no better.

The next closest would be Pasha. If he continues to amaze and spends the rest of his career here, it is possible. I won't say yes, but I sure won't count him out yet.

I would like it if there was some sort of a secondary honouring system for guys like Ozzie, Drapes, Malts, Hank, Mac, Probie... guys who played a huge role in Red Wings history and were fan faves. Certainly not jersey retirement- that is just for the creme de la creme.


They do.

It's these along the wall of the entrance to the locker room or something like that.

Obviously if you're special enough to have your number in the rafters then you get both a banner that forever reserves the number and a plaque.

Cool. I've never been to the Joe and have never heard of anyone getting the honour, so I'm glad they have something. I've seen the plaques sometimes on tv, but have never seen them up close.

Yzerman got one recently if I'm not mistaken? They do look pretty cool and I'd love to see them in person one day! *Can dream*.

Lidstrom's #5. Then another 40 years of nothing.

I'd potentially like to see #35 up there at his career's end :) he can be one big player in the future.

#96(just to spite Bowman!)

The possibility of Pasha getting up there grows every season as he continues to just get better at his craft, took awhile. Among his peers there aren't many who deny it really and the longer he stays with the organization the harder it becomes to think anyone can wear #13 in the Winged Wheel ever again and what other premise does one have for retiring a jersey? Can't think of one.
TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS EXPECTED.

There are honored wings alumni and the Red Wings Hall of Fame as well.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

"For my game, I don't need to score the goal," Konstantinov once explained. "I need someone to start thinking about me and forgetting about scoring goals."
