One More Offseason Topic: Zajac's Number Retired One Day?

Recommended Posts

I'm really disappointed the Ring of Honor stopped being a thing, cause we all had a good idea who should be in it.

I love Zajac, so I'm biased into thinking an argument could be made for him to go to the rafters. But realistically, him and Sarge should have absolutely continued the now defunct Ring of Honor practice.

Is it actually defunct, or have we just not added anyone else?

Well McMullen was how many seasons ago, three or four? So maybe it’s not defunct, but I figured we would see one a year cause we definitely have enough people to fill that criteria

Lou is next, but he needs to retire from GM’ing first.

Yeah that would make sense.

I guess honoring a local rival’s GM wouldn’t be a great look.

Zajac doesn’t deserve to have his jersey retired, but he’s been a solid player for a long, long time. If the Devils restart their Ring of Honor, he would definitely deserve to be inducted into that group.

Zajac IMO is actually a 1990s/2000s type of Devils player, but unlike the great, very good, and good players who played on those past Devils teams who were surrounded by many other quality players, Zajac hasn’t had much around him quality player-wise in recent years. Unlike many Devils players of recent years, Zajac could have played on those very good, past Devils teams and been a useful piece of puzzle in helping them win.

If you hang up Zajac's sweater you are becoming the rangers.

At least current Devils fans would actually remember Zajac though...

No. 

Agreed and I don't think this is even close.   Like many others have said, if the ring thing gets to be expanded he might be an appropriate guy to put in there

Yeah, I wish I understood what this meant.

Yes on Kakko, but time will tell on that and maybe not just the first five minutes of their careers.

it was a joke about "don`t blame anyone when you are kakko fan", - it`s a logical, funny and it`s a reason to not belive in words about zajac`s number. And after that - i was going to self-irony about the inscription(ny rangers have  red-white letters on uniform) on chest - this inscription is on me becouse i wanted hang up zajac`s number in posts before(like titan said) - the joke contradicts me in my disbelief and returns to the beginning.

i don`t like to explain joke, my lenguage in joke and in explain was bad, sorry for all of that. it`s a reason to finish with that.

His English may be weak but his humor is definitely strong. Love it.

I'm not sure how I feel about retiring Zajac's jersey. Like CR said, he's been a loyal Devil, and the last of the Devils committed to the LL credo. He's been a great player for our franchise too. But, I'll wait to see what the Devils accomplish in his last few seasons with the team.

What's more pressing to me is the captaincy. Everyone seems to be ready to hand it to Hall. But I'm of the unpopular opinion it should go to Zajac next, should Greene leave after this year.

I'd have to disagree with the captaincy. Assuming Hall is re-signed, he's the leader. There's no point in putting it on Zajac who is only a year younger than Greene.
