I remember Joe Sakic wearing 88 in Quebec before Lindros was drafted by the Nordiques. Was Joe asked to change his number by the management because of Eric? What was the reason for his number change? Does anybody know?

To have this answered would be like lifting a 10 pound weight around my neck that I've been carrying around for 15 years...so thanks in advance!
