The Mlive article got me thinking about this.
The majority seems to think that #14 in the rafters is a no-go.
So what works against Shanny the most?
- Not playing his entire career here? This is bull to me for Shanny because anyone who knows of Brendan Shanahan thinks of him as a Red Wing and it's not close.
- The selectiveness of the Red Wings when it comes to retiring numbers? The guys who are up there are legends.
- The fact that the Wings won't retire #91? Maybe if he didn't act like such a ****...
Reality is that when he was here, he was arguably our best player and without question our #1 goal scorer. I personally think he should be retired, but I'm only at about 55/45 with it. I think the argument that works against him the most is the Wings' selectiveness.
