The only criteria for getting your jersey retired is because the owner says it should be retired. I don't know where fans get the idea that there's some sort of standard or litmus test that has to be passed. If Mike (or Chris or Marian or whoever is making the decisions these days) says someone's number will be retired, it will be retired. The Wings and their fans are fortunate to have so many players in recent years to have this discussion about.
