I'm also sure that teams do this, I don't think I've ever seen another 91 since Federov left the Wings, that can't be by accident

I'd also be willing to bet that no Wing ever wears 40 or 13 again, whether they officially retire those numbers or not
Seems like you answered your own question. Teams in all sports do this. Where they draw the line, will never be up to you the fan though. I don't see any reason to officially semi retire numbers. Unofficially works just fine, right?
