Best NHLers to wear #16?
 
People often talk about the history of #4 and #9 in the NHL, but what about #16? There have been a lot of great players that wore the number. Who are people's favourites?

LA LA LA LA LA LAFONTAINE!!! :yo: his career ended far too short

Ajacied 01-13-2005 05:10 AM

Brett Hull..

Taranis_24 01-13-2005 05:35 AM

I possibly could be wrong on this, but didn't Marcel Dionne wear #16?

mattihp 01-13-2005 05:53 AM

Pat LaFontaine

How about the great Henri Richard ? I'd have to look up the numbers but I believe he ran out of fingers for his rings.

#1 in your heart

Trevor Linden was pretty decent

Chili 01-13-2005 07:09 AM

The first two names who came to mind were Henri Richard and Bobby Clarke (both had their numbers retired).

I believe Marcel Dionne and Michel Goulet also had their number 16's retired.

11 cups and he's the only one with as many.

May not be "the best" but Michel Goulet was pretty close to the top of the list.

John Flyers Fan 01-13-2005 09:11 AM

Bobby Clarke is the best of those mentioned so far.

Followed by Henri Richard and then Dionne/Brett Hull.

The Pocket Rocket gets my vote. At the end of the day, his record is the individual one that matters most.

mooseOAK* 01-13-2005 10:04 AM

Bobby Hull, he wore 16 before 9.

Macman 01-13-2005 10:09 AM

Rick Middleton wasn't too shabby.

Chili 01-13-2005 10:19 AM

Nifty had great hands.

c-carp 01-13-2005 02:43 PM

All good names and this one has already been mentioned but I will throw another Brett Hull out there.

kurt 01-13-2005 03:27 PM

16
 
Yeah, the players that came to mind for me were LaFontaine, Linden and Hull, those would be the best players that I've been around to watch. Any more obscure dark horses that may have been overlooked?

Nomad 01-13-2005 05:10 PM

Chris Kontos.

What, you doing something with perfect squares, 4, 9, 16????? I think it's gonna be hard with 36 though and 49.

LaFontaine

BuppY 01-13-2005 05:43 PM

Hull!!!

svetovy poharu 01-16-2005 01:46 PM

How 'bout Boston's "The Turk" Derek Sanderson or NY Rangers Rod Seiling, a
couple of #16 1970s throwback memories.
