I hate this thing that it would be some sort of hockey sin that someone would wear 66 (or 99 if that wasn't league wide retired).We always want the player with personality but don't want the cocky kid who thinks he's hot stuff or that he's even just honoring one of his hockey heroes but can't because its off limits for some reason. I don't get it. Basketball players wear Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson or Larry Bird's number. Its not a disrespect thing its a sign of respect. Better then the number fading away because no one wears it. Hell 99 isn't up in alot of arenas but you see someone wearing 99 and people will talk to the kids saying why he's wearing it.
