Chris Taylor is a decent hockey player, but it is strange to see him wearing the number 16. The Sabres should do the right thing and retire Pat LaFontaine's number. The always classy LaFontaine was a shining star during an era of mediocrity. His strong leadership and magnificent play set a foundation of respectability that shows in today's strong Sabres club. Giving up on Lafontaine was a dark hour for the Sabres, and retiring his jersey would assuage the bitterness.
