    Isn't Park still sour about being traded? I think he considers himself a Bruin first and foremost.

    Walter Tkaczuk as deserving as any past Ranger in the last fifty years. Currently living in St. Mary's Ontario I believe.

    14 year lifelong Ranger.

    Supposedly, there's been a thaw and some Rangers, including Gilbert, are lobbying for him.

    Meh, the Habs have retired 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, and a half-dozen more. I think it’s cool that their players now have to wear weird numbers; It’s become part of their identity.

    Darker still

    The last phenom we had wearing #31 looked like the next Pat Roy with his style, flair, and effortless saves, then wound up retiring 2 or 3 years later and has to wear two blockers when he is invited to celebrity games because of a freak injury.

    Loved Blackburn. When Ricky was getting those concussions, Blackie made it more bearable with his hope.

    I think we all are hoping Kakko proves your statement untrue.

    How is this a thread? It's going to be Lundqvist as soon as 2021 but probably more realistically 2022-2023.

    Frank Boucher should be honored already for having a hand in the first three Cups but unfortunately it's not realistic because he's not contemporary or has no ties to 94 :(

    I mentioned Bill Cook and Frank Boucher earlier, they should have been the first 2 numbers that the Rangers retired. 50 years ago.

    Walt Tkaczuk was mentioned.

    Bryan Hextall (Ron’s Grandfather) was a great player for us in the late 30’s and 40’s. He scored the 1940 cup clincher in OT. Frank Boucher also was the coach of that team.

    Agreed. I like the weird numbers.

    I think it would be really cool to have some great player skating around with something bizarre like 57 on his jersey lmfao.

    The Habs also have won 6 times the amount of Stanley Cups that we have.

    But it's ok that there are different opinions to this, I guess I just really like the lower numbers :D

    Tanner Glass. LOL.

    Girardi won't get his number retired. Good Ranger. Not a great player. Hank is the next one.

    #99

    Can someone explain to me why the Rangers haven't retired #99 yet??? It was retired by the league but yet doesn't hang in the rafters of one of the arenas he called home. I have been wondering this for years. I remember he was asked about the Rangers retiring his number around the time of his retirement and he said #11 had to go up first...well, it did.

    Re: #68 - Someone will have a better memory so correct me where I am wrong. In Jagr's last season as a Ranger, he had a clause in his contract that would have triggered another year or a team option for another year, if he hit certain scoring totals. Amazingly, Jagr went through a ridiculous slump. I can't remember how bad it was but I just remember it being inexplicably bad, and the option did not trigger. Jagr signed with a KHL team one day after the Rangers were eliminated from the PO's. Instead of taking what was believed to be a Ranger 1 year offer with a low base salary and incentives, Jagr went to Russia and earned the equivalent of $11M per season ($7M tax free in Russia) on a 2 yr deal with an option for a 3rd.

    In Jagr's defense, I believe there was a second trigger for the option year based on PO scoring and he had a very good PO's.

    Another thing I remember about that season is everyone knew the Rangers needed a secondary scorer and a defensive Dman. The Pens had the same needs and acquired Hossa and Hal Gill and won the Cup. Hossa put up 26 points in 20 games. Jagr put up 15 in 10.

    I forget the exact specifications but I think he was only a few points shy (4 rings a bell) from triggering the auto-extension. Another stipulation that would've done it was if he had won the MVP in 05/06. He got robbed. Pretty sure if he hit any of these, we'd have avoided the Wade Redden fiasco.

    It is just something we in the Netherlands aren't used to. They don't even allow official number retirement in football in most leagues. Retiring numbers is a typical American thing, and the Rangers having retired only 2 numbers in 78 years were sort of the odd man out IMO.

    I have no problem with retiring other numbers, as long as they are earned and not like Graves and Richter just shoehorned in because they won a Cup.

    Hank will be next. I think Zibanejad is trending to one day have his number up in the rafters too.

    If JD engineers a cup or 3, would you put 00 up there?
