Stan Smyl's #12 is about to get some company as #16 head is slated for the rafters at GM Place on December 17th:
‘Trevor Linden Night’ will include a number of special guests and keynote speakers and will be an opportunity for Canucks fans to show their appreciation to Linden one more time. Linden’s number 16 will join Stan Smyl’s number 12 which was raised to the rafters at the Pacific Coliseum on November 3, 1991.
Anyone want to take a guess what those "special guests" will be? It'll be 1994 all over again. Linden will join quite the list of others who have donned #16 and had their jersey's retired, including Bobby Clarke, Pat LaFontaine and Bobby Hull.
