Just curious. I hope so. The number isn't retired and I hope someone wears it so that everyone will be so completely consumed in it that they rupture an artery.

I don't know if everyone would be consumed with it, but I know you seem like you already are.

There should only be one player to wear #66.

I think a prospect in either the traverse city tourney or the oilers young stars team is wearing it. U remember the commentators scoffing at it.

Trevor Gillies will change his number 6 times this year to 66 whenever the Pens play the Isles, then promptly change it back the next game.

I would imagine the coaching staff would have the good judgment to not allow it if the player lacks it.

I doubt another player will ever where it in a regular season game. Most teams don't even use that number during training camp.

Personally I wish they let Gino Odjick keep #66 after his rookie year. It would have made a great "deal with it" gif.

I have a feeling the Flames heard from the league about Brody as the Canucks allegedly did in 91. It would make more sense back then though, when Mario was such a heavily marketed player. I don't see a move being made to retire #66 in the entire league though, that opens up a can of worms of retroactively honouring other players. Mario wore an uncommon number so it's not too tricky, but couldn't one argue if Mario deserves the honour, 4 and 9 should be retired too.

Sometimes wearing the number of an old icon is a tribute. If somebody wants to channel Super Mario when they play, I say let them.

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.
