This Shades, is ****ing adorable with his big-ass head and his 'too cool fo' school' sunglasses that he can peer over.

The new Shades has his mouth open. WTF?

Also, Shades wearing anything other than #95 irks me. Especially if we get a more traditional staff where they want low numbered players. Who wears #95? Nobody, because the highest number on the team will be like 30.

At least give him #00 or something, but in keeping the original number, even if they keep the 'interpretation' of him they have, makes the connection that this is supposed to be the same guy, and not merely a Shades stand-in.

Even if the whole 'Oh this is a different franchise' thing is even an argument, there's precedent. When a player has his number retired, it often gets lowered from the stands if the guy's son or nephew or whatever plays for the team.

Brett Hull got to wear Bobby's number in Phoenix, given that number had been retired for Bobby's stint as a Winnipeg Jet in the WHA.
