The Malik Report

from Sean Gentille of The Sporting News,
The Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday announced, finally, that they're retiring Pavel Bure's No. 10 jersey. That got us thinking—which players, if any, should be next to be so honored by their teams?
We'll go by the new divisions, starting today with the Atlantic, or Flortheast, or whatever.
Detroit Red Wings: Sergei Fedorov, No. 91
That would initially bother a lot of people, and it's out of step with the franchise's last two honorees. Both were long-time captains who only played for the Red Wings, but there has to be a chance that No. 91 is headed to the rafters at some point. Fedorov was one of the absolute best players of his era, and time has a way of smoothing things over.
Retirees: Terry Sawchuk (1), Nicklas Lidstrom (5), Ted Lindsay (7), Alex Delvecchio (10), Gordie Howe (9), Sid Abel (12), Steve Yzerman (19).
Future candidates: Pavel Datsyuk (13), Henrik Zetterberg (40)
more on the other Atlantic teams.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
