    I'm still wondering why the NHL is thinking about it.

    As I have said before, retiring#9 is a wonderful idea to honor Mr Howe but we can't forget he's not the only great player to wear that number and there are some good players still wearing the number now. If the current players can wear their numbers until the end of their careers I can see not assigning the number anymore. I don't think it can go any further than that, you can't take anyone's number away from them in the middle of their NHL career

    It should have been retired a long time ago.
