As the Canadiens travel from Carolina to Tampa Bay, continuing their five-game road trip, here's a topic that should provide some diverse opinions.

The Montreal Canadiens have retired 15 numbers in honour of 17 players, the most in the National Hockey League. Incredibly, every one of these players is in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and every one of them has won the Stanley Cup at least once (Henri Richard leads the pack as a player with 11 championships).

But, obviously, other teams aren't capable of, and thus don't, hold their players to such high standards when it comes to jersey retirements. There have been guys like Trevor Linden, who was a hero in Vancouver and a longtime captain but was never a point-per-game player, and Ken Daneyko, who holds the Devils franchise lead for games played and won three Stanley Cups, but lived much of his career in the shadow of Scott Stevens, and the Minnesota Wild's fan base, which apparently deserved to have the no. 1 retired in its honour. Jeez, is that a gimmick or what?
