Jared Book is joined by Scott Matla and Namiko Hitotsubashi as they discuss the history of the Montreal Canadiens and the potential of the next retired numbers for the organization.

Andrei Markov and Tomas Plekanec have been all over social media this season and remain two of the top Canadiens players of this era. Did they do enough over their careers to have their numbers retired? The panel discusses.

They also discuss other candidates like Carey Price, Saku Koivu, and Brendan Gallagher. Could a joint ceremony for #11 be in the cards? It will depend on a lot of factors going forward.

After that discussion, they look towards the future and discuss what the depth of the Top 25 Under 25 means for the Canadiens going forward, starting at what should be a very competitive training camp this fall.
