I am really hoping that the Jets find a way to take this number out of circulation. Whther they do it informally or Ring of Honour or actually retire it up to the rafters this number is one I find deserves to be retired by the franchise.
If you are unaware as to the connection between this number and tragedy within the franchise, both Daniel Snyder and Rick Rypien wore this number throughout their NHL careers and both men died far too soon while still members of the Thrashers/Jets franchise.
I'd like to see the Dan Snyder Memorial Award rolled over as well as keeping Snyder's parents and the Dan Snyder Memorial Foundation involved with the team.
There are some things bigger than hockey. This is one of those things.
