Not that important, but I would have loved it if O'Byrne chose a single digit number (ex: Rick Green's former #5, or #6, heck...even #8...it's not like Komisarek ever came close to retiring that number!!).

Would have been funny if he took the famous #77!! (Bourque and several other Hall of Fame dmen used it, can't remember the others for now...).
Just saying...either listening to the interview, or reading quickly through this thread, would have given you the information that O'Byrne could have picked in the higher numbers if he wanted to, but settled for #20. He even explained that he wore #2 in college, so he's very satisfied with 20.

All that being said, I don't see why O'Byrne didn't go for #9?
