Suggest Me A Number

So I normally wear #19, but that number appears to be taken and I need suggestions on numbers. I'm a playmaker type, but also a hustle and defensive forward. I need some ideas on what to wear please! So far, I'm considering 91, the reverse of 19, and 21.

If you've ever read the Hitchiker's Guide to the galaxy, you know that you must wear 42. If you haven't, then you have not yet lived.

So? If you don't have a player you really want to have the number of, just pick one that looks good to you. Nothing wrong with having your own identity.

If you like lower numbers, how 'bout 17? Good number, not worn too much, Brind'Amour is about the only big name player I can think of who wears it, 13 is a good one, marks you as superstitious by being anti superstitious though.

Higher up, 24's a nice balanced number. So is 26.

Anything past the 40s is going to be a bit "look at me", especially 91. If you're gonna go that route, just pick a random number that's not taken by a current or recent star player. The guys wearing 66, 99, 88, 87 and 68 all look like tools.

It's really not that big a deal. Just pick something that YOU like, and adopt it as your identity.

91?





Take #10 for Ron Francis

edit: didn't see that you were asking for suggestions on current players. My suggestion still stands though. 1 + 9 = 10, right?

My favourite numbers are 2 (D), 4(D), 5(D), 12 (forward), 24 (D) and 26 (either).

Well, it can be alright, but in my experience it tends to be the fanboys who have no idea how to actually play. If you're a good enough player it doesn't really matter.

Kovalchuck, Carter... aren't too bad themselves.

Personally some numbers look really good

61 has been said, i think it looks good depending on your number pattern

84 is ok, or you could do something obscure like 57, 47.. most 30-50's arent used as much as other sets of numbers
