But look at why players might hold Blake in high regard, in that maybe they don't want to take the number. He thought he was worth more than a team was willing to pay, so he waited, got traded to a contender, beat the team that wasn't willing to pay him what he wanted and traded him, won a Cup, and then got paid more than what the previous team was willing to pay. That makes everyone's salary go up.

From a strictly PA point of view, Blake has to be a poster boy.

That, or the Kings plan on retiring the number, or just don't want to give it out.
