Currently, the Boston Bruins have 11 retired jersey numbers: 10 from former players and one league-wide retiring of the great Wayne Gretzky's No. 99.
From a number of generations, some of the greatest players to ever wear the black and gold have been bestowed with the highest individual honor.
Men like Bobby Orr, Eddie Shore, Phil Esposito, Terry O'Reilly and Ray Bourque have had the honor to watch their name and number raised to the rafters inside the Boston Garden, never to be worn again.
Although there are fewer players now who are as loyal to a particular franchise as they had been in Orr's day or in Bourque's, there are a select few that have a chance at immortality.
