Bruins Ring of Honor



So Vancouver is drawing some heat for it's announcement of a "Ring of Honor" last night as a sort of salutarian honor for players who aren't quite legendary enough for number retirement status.  My knee-jerk reaction is to hate this idea, it seems somewhat insulting to the players to designate them as, "Great, but not epic."

But then I thought some more about it and then it started to make sense, especially for the Bruins.  We can all probably name the banners hanging from the rafters, and there is no doubt that they are all next-level, legendary figures in hockey.  But the Bruins do have a second tier - players who, while maybe not statistically superior or necessarily widely acknowledged outside of the city, but mean a great deal to the franchise and are still central figures in the minds of Bs fans. 


So my question is two fold - is the Canucks' Ring of Honor a good idea or a flop?  And, if the Bruins had a similar system, who would you nominate for it?  My top-of-the-head suggestions are Gerry Cheevers and Brad Park, and I'm sure you guys will come up with more.
