    They will probably retire Thomas and Cheevers' number together.

    I wouldn't have a problem with that. Or retire Cheevers' mask. Laughing

    About your other post, I don't have a problem with retiring numbers a bit loosely, but if you want to tighten it up, that's fine. However, to your list, I'd defenitely include Esposito -- he and Orr did define hockey for a generation. And I'd include Johnny Bucyk. He had longevity but he also was a top left winger in his prime. Had he been on better teams early in his career, his numbers might have been even better.

    No question that Espo was real good. I just don't like retiring numbers. Bucyk for me was a bit of a stretch. He didn't define a generation like the other guys. Same with Terry O'Reily.

    #30 should have been hung in the rafters when Cheevers retired.
