What about 96?

 

HA!  I love Holmstrom.  He was my favorite player for a long stretch and a part of FOUR Stanley Cup teams.

 

However, he's no superstar.  He's not universally heralded nor acclaimed.

 

Holmstrom is one of those dudes that gets stuff done.  He might not be the flashiest, or have all the deke's, ice time, or goals to show for it.

 

He's a breed of folks that won't have numbers retired, but will be in the hearts of folks for a long time.  When I think of his type of player, I think of the heavy lifters like Draper, McCarty, and Murphy (pre-new glasses).

 

No, there's no way in hell Holmstrom's number should be retired.
