Playing off of the what number do you wear thread, I am curious to know what you all thought the worst number was to wear..

being from pittsburgh and a disciple of mario lemieux (ok hes like my favorite player ever), I HATED it when kids wore 66...or even 68 (jagr) for that matter. we used to dog kids who wore those numbers ridiculously bad

how about you guys>

I always hated to see numbers higher than 28 for skaters, and 35 for goalies.
Old codger voice: "I remember the days when" goalies wore 1 or 29-31, maybe 35 (Tony Esposito ;) )and Defencemen wore 2-6....

Wayne went and ruined all that!

99. No one should wear that number. It belongs to Gretzky and no one is good enough to wear it. Same thing with 4 because of Bobby Orr and Jean Beliveau. 66 should not be worn after Mario retires. 69 is simply a dumb number to pick. Yeah we all know it's a posion but grow up.

You guys need something better to worry about. Seriously it is a jersey number, if a kid (and for the most part they are kids) wants to pretend he is wayne gretzky who really cares. It isn't as though Gretz is going to pop out from behind the scenes of a ford advertisment and be insulted by the jersey.

Am I wrong or did the NHL completely retire 99 so noone could wear it again?

Anyway I saw a guy in a beer league roller hockey game wear 99 :shakehead, It's simple unless you have the talent of Gretzky don't wear that number.

well, i wore 9 for a long time, but when i changed leagues and joined a team called The Aeros i changed to 12 out of respect for Gordie.

i admit i dislike any player who wears 99 unless its Wayne.

and anyone wearing 69 gets run eventually by someone on the club.

I just think it's funny how kids' numbers change.
15 years ago, you were sure to see a number 88 on every team, since Lindros was the newest big thing. Then through the 90s, every team was sure to have a 68 or a 93; Jagr was piling up points, and Gilmour was the most popular player in Canada.
Sure enough, #87 is the next big thing, and someone on every team is wearing it.

Imo any guy can wear any number they like. It doesn't take away any respect for anyone. I don't think that just because "the second best scorer of Div.8 beer-league" wears a specific number, anyone will forget any accomplishment of the player whose number is worn.

Kids are kids, I typically don't care as long as it's not 69

I typically wore #14 (just because) or #81 (birth year 1981)

And I think every league should be the same.

I completely agree. I just love seeing awful men's league players who will wear 66, dress completely like Lemieux from head to toe, and are the worst player on the ice. There should be a certain amount of respect for those two numbers.

There are so many other numbers to choose from unlike in football where you have 50 guys on a team. Most teams have 20-25 guys tops, I think we can avoid signature numbers like 66, 99, and possibly 87 in the future.

07-24-2005, 02:26 PM
Someone asked earlier if anyone wore 98. I know Brian Lawton was issued it after he was drafted #1 overall but it was too presumptuous and he changed it early in his rookie season.

Neil Sheehy wore 0 in Hartford. Dumb.

I can tolerate numbers in the 30's but I am not a fan of the non traditional numbers. The rosters for every major junior team read like the offensive line for the New England Patriots or something. 46,61,73,87,96... come on.

I wore 99 once for a 3 game Tournament.

I had the worst 3 games of my life. It was like physcological. I knew I had 99 on the back and I could never live up to anything like him. I ended up scoreless in the 3 games and fell on my ass several times. I even hated it when the jersey was handed to me. I wont wear 99 in a league but had to for this tournament and that is the last time I've ever wore 99.

69, and 99. 69 is just so 7th Grade.

I don't have any problems with any numbers even if they're famous numbers (like 99). The only ones I don't like is if they are not 1 or 2 digits, such as 100 or 1000 or stuff like that (I've seen a few examples, for special games only but it still looked lame). I think I even saw a guy once wearing like 98.7 or something as it was sponsored by a local radio station.

JD Wore 00 for 2 years when the Rangers changed their uniforms for a couple of years in the 70's. He went back to his regular number 30 in 78-79 when the rangers returned to their old uniforms. When JD talks about it now it is obvious he regrets ever wearing that number. He took a lot of flak for it. Jokes about his save % etc.

I have no problem with any number that anyone wears, it's just a number if a kid wants to wear 99 let him, if he wants to wear 66 let him, there's no disrespect to that player it's actually respect to that player. Think about it, your wearing that number because you respect that player for what he has done on the ice.

A number is just that, a NUMBER! The number doesn't make the player, the player makes the number. Lemieux made 66 famous, Gretzky made 99. Espo made 7. Nash will make 61 a very popular number, and Crosby could make 87 famous too.

I always wear number 44, and its not because Bertuzzi or Pronger are my fav players,(cuz they arnt) it is what was left when I found it remaining in my rookie hockey season. I think more interesting numbers are good to get around. Example who wheres 98 or 88 or 59 or even 57? All it takes is for 1 future star to don a jersey wearing number 57 and if he turns into a Joe Sakic well there ya go, everyone will consider that player a rolemodel and want to wear numbers. I don't know about all of you but I'll play with any number.

Back to the main question....for me 1 number I had a few bad seasons with was number 9...but that again doesnt mean much. I had a bad 2 seasons, but I was still wearing 1 of the best hockey numbers there is!!!

Completely agree.
It just a number. If Gretzky would have worn number 13, he would have been equally succesfull. It doesn't matter.

By the way, you guys know the story of Eric Lindros getting some bashing on the 92 Olympics because of the fact that he wore number 88 ?
Because for Modern-day Nazi's (yes yes, they still seems to exist.. :( ) the number 88 stands for the letters HH, which is associated with the term Heil Hitler.

So there is it, people can really lose their heads about a number ... sad.

I hate all numbers above 35 for hockey players. There are plenty of usable numbers in there to pick from (even on the Habs, with all their retired numbers). And stop with the numbers in the 90's crap. This isn't football, and you aren't linemen.

I wish the NHL still had the rule about the numbering (defensemen had to wear between 2 & 12, forwards were 13 up to 29, goalies were 1 or 30 or 31). Nothing wrong with tradition.

They had such a rule? Source?

It's probably been changed by now, but it was a rule throughout the 1950's through the 1970's. Even in the 1980's, it was followed fairly closely. But with all the retired numbers on the "left-over" 6 teams, I imagine the NHL let them have their way with numbers.

I refuse to call them "original 6" teams, since there were several other teams who were members of the NHL before 1943 (when it was pared down to only 6 teams).

I guess you would have to find an NHL rule book from somewhere in the 1960's-1979 era to see that rule. It has obviously been re-written today.

You guys need something better to worry about. Seriously it is a jersey number, if a kid (and for the most part they are kids) wants to pretend he is wayne gretzky who really cares. It isn't as though Gretz is going to pop out from behind the scenes of a ford advertisment and be insulted by the jersey.


HAHA!

re: 99
kids are one thing, but when it's some mid-life crisis-having hack in a rec league, it kinda makes me nauseous... he's a lawyer to boot...what kind of a deluded asshat has the nerve to take 99?
we also have a 66 in our league (but he's actually highly skilled so you almost forgive him), and a 69 (i remember giving him a ton of guff about it in-game during his first year in the league; i inadvertantly elbowed him, he whined about me not getting a penalty and i chapped him on the way to the bench for having such a ****** bag number).
but i can't talk, i went with one of those glamour boy numbers for a few seasons... my two favorite players of all-time are Rod Gilbert and Gordie but both 7 and 9 were taken...so i went with #79.
of course i never lived it down when Yashin went to NYI and took that number.
i stuck with it a couple more seasons, f-you, i gave Yashin and Markov their props, too.
but now i am back to #10 from my first year.

It's probably been changed by now, but it was a rule throughout the 1950's through the 1970's. Even in the 1980's, it was followed fairly closely. But with all the retired numbers on the "left-over" 6 teams, I imagine the NHL let them have their way with numbers.

I refuse to call them "original 6" teams, since there were several other teams who were members of the NHL before 1943 (when it was pared down to only 6 teams).

I guess you would have to find an NHL rule book from somewhere in the 1960's-1979 era to see that rule. It has obviously been re-written today.

I've got a few of the older rulebooks at my house, so I'll check when I get back, but I'm 90% sure that it was never an official rule.

A lot of players in the timeframe you mentioned wore numbers outside the boundaries you specified. Gordie Howe and Maurice Richard both wore #9. Alex Delvecchio wore #10. Norm Ullman wore #7. J.C. Tremblay wore #21. Et cetera.

Threads like this are the sort of thing that lead me to the conclusion that most sports fans are intellectually immature people with very little going on in their lives of any importance.

I hate ridiculously high numbers.

I was watching some of the FLA-NYR game on OLN tonight, and the Rangers had Jagr (68), Straka (82) and Nylander (92) working together on the PP. It just seems unneccessary.
jagr wears 68 b/c that's the yr of the (unsuccessful) czechoslovakian revolution against the USSR.

As opposed to you, who no doubt is just taking a break from finishing up your third Nobel Prize?

I'm mentally stable enough to not get upset over the numbers players are wearing during sporting events.

"OMG a high number!!!! The world is ending!!!!"

I used to be a dick and take runs at anyone who wore #69.

Thats the whole reason i wore #69. So little $hits would take runs at me, then i would pound them into the ice. My last year of Bantam i had 27 fighting majors in 30 games. Those were the days :yo:

That's actually pretty funny. The losers who get mad and take runs at guys wearing 69 were probably the ones who thought 69er jokes were the greatest thing ever back in the 8th grade.

Anything in the 30s looks silly. 32, 34, 36 and 37 are particular bad.

One Bruins number that is neither retired nor likely worn any longer is #6. It's considered bad luck after #1 pick Gord Kluzak wore it and succumbed to chronic knee problems. When Joe Thornton started his career wearing #6, a writer or two in Boston started grumbling that he should get rid of it. Joe eventually switched to #19, after Steve Yzerman, I believe.

For what it's worth, in my own Boston-area hockey league, I wear #77.

Before Roenick even wore it, I wore 97. It started when I was 14 and trying out for an older team and i just kept it. Never really had to worry about anyone already having that number and I love the way it looks on a jersey. Some numbers, from a visual standpoint, just stand out more than others.

I'm stuck wearing 99 this year because of a mistake by my coach.
