When I was younger, I would always hear that numbers that were above 30 for skaters were "showboat" numbers. I know Gretzky took 99 because 9 was taken and he loved Howe. So I took #2 always because it was a modest number and #1 was usually reserved for goalies. My brother also wore #2 (we weren't on the same team). Growing up a Ranger fan, Tom Laidlaw and of course Brian Leetch also wore #2 so I just stuck with it. If #2 was gone, I just doubled up and went with #22.
