I grabbed a #18 York jersey after his rookie year and I was actually happy he changed. It's like a badge of honor when you are the only guy at the Garden, in a sea of #16 jerseys, and you have the only #18. Way I see it is if a guy wore it in the game, the jersey is legit.
a buddy of mine was at a convention with some co-workers...he needed me to go to his office and open up his safe to get out some paperwork and fax it to him ASAP...he didn't want anybody in the room to know the combo so he whispered real low...Wells, Lidster, karpotsev, Zubov....

Yeah I remembered after the post that Cullen had 5 last year. I should have remembered since they were still selling his alternate jersey for $50 bucks at the Double Team store two weeks ago.
I always appreciated Samuelsson here despite his reputation around the league and his past history. He obviously had some dirty hits in the past, but he played his ass off here and I will always appreciate that. I wish more players in the years after him could have played as hard as he did every minute on the ice.
