Well lets look at a few things:
#6 on the team in games played with 1026
#3 on the team in Powerplay goals with 122
#5 on the team in GWG with 39
Less than 100 points away from being in the top 10 in all time points for the Wings. There is no questioning his importance to this team over his career. It's not like anyone is ever gonna wear #96 again, but I think the argument holds some water...but then again, I believe Osgood's #30 should go up there too...and a strong argument for Fedorov. But that is it. I am not looking to throw all #'s from the dynasty up there...
I think it's pretty much a lock though that no inclusion in the HHoF means no number in the rafters where the Wings are concerned & Homer isn't getting into the HHoF.
Edit: Well, not necessarily true. He can buy a ticket...
