NHL and WHA hofs are easy for me to research, but I am wondering about the individual franchise ones.

Vancouver Canucks have:
Ring of Honour (Pat Quinn, Orland Kurtenbach, Kirk McLean, Thomas Gradin, Harold Snepsts)
retired Jersey #s (Stan Smyl, Markus Naslund, Pavel Bure, Markus Naslund)

(Question #1)
Is any kind of recognition from a franchise enough to ban a player? (e.g., would all of the above 9 players be banned?)

(Some teams don't retire numbers, but they do "honour" them)


(Question #2)
I understand that being in the HHOF blacklists a player from this league, no matter what team
one would want to use them for. 

But if a player is in a franchise HOF, does that ban him from being twisted by other franchises?
(e.g., Makus Maslund has had his # retired by the Canucks, but could he still be used by Pittsburgh and NY Rangers?

here is a list that claims to list all of the retired #'s in the NHL (if that counts for blacklisting a player)

yeah - i use wikipedia to look up stuff and HOF sites.

Good questions. Here's the answers:

1. teams do have HOF for players. i thought about Ring of Honour.... to me that's a snazzy way of saying team HOF, so they cannot be on a team.
2. retired jerseys do not count toward HOF, unless of course they are in a HOF.

I hope that helps.
