If you're playing in beer leagues, there are guaranteed to be some guys there who need to get laid and who haven't been laid since before the NHL lockout.
So since those guys ARE going to be there there, your statement is completely irrelevant.
So the real question then becomes: do you want to be the guy who has to deal with the all hacking, and the cheap shots, and the constant grief that goes along with wearing the numbers that you KNOW are going to bring those responses.
For the umpteen-millionth time.......if you want wear a number, fine! Go ahead! Wear whatever number you want. Just know understand what problems are likely going to be associated with it, both for yourself (if you wear a "sacred" number) or for your team (like wearing a typical goalie number).
That's the whole point of this thread, isn't? That the OP has a question about what jersey numbers represent and the etiquette behind them. Call it stupid if you want, but if one chooses to ignore the standard hockey protocols, one should know what to expect when they do so.
