If Ed Belfour made it to the hall of fame, Chris Osgood is in.
#30 will no longer be worn by a member of the Detroit Red Wings. #5 will no longer be worn by a member of the Detroit Red Wings post-Lidstrom.
Shanahan won't have his number retired here, because he played in too many places (HFD, NJ, NYR, DET, STL)
McCarty won't have his number retired here because aside from flattening Fraude Ledouche in 1997 and scoring the 97 cup winner, what else has he really done? Went to Calgary, had problems, came back, retired.
Belfour was one of the 3 or 4 best goalies in the world for about 10 years.
Ozzie was never in that class, period.
