DETROIT - There are Detroit Red Wings fans on both sides of the issue. 

Some say Sergei Fedorov's No. 91 should have been hanging from the Joe Louis Arena rafters years ago while others say he doesn't deserve it.

I wrote about this in 2015 when he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame (read here).

He was recently named among the NHL's top 100 greatest modern-era players.
