Oates will be #77

When Oates plays his first game as an Oiler, he will be wearing #77, not #37 as first thought. He was just on a sports station in Edmonton and he said he doesn't want to change his number and he's sticking with 77.

Good...that way I won't see him on the ice and have a Swanson or McAmmond flashback. Those sting.

Please... I don't need to be reminded of these stars we were forced to let go because of our small market.

Seventy Seven

Yea #77 is a Mojo aworkin' kinda' thing. 77 = 1001101 in binary and D4 in hex (go figure), and LXXVII in Roman Numerals.

No other Oilers are wearing that number. XII, 1100, C are the Roman Numeral, Binary, and Hexidecimal equivalents.

On the PPV last night, Principe asked Oates what number he'll be wearing, and he said 77.

This whole number issue is getting a little weird. Which one already? The website still says 37. Principe says 77 and the Stock says 12.

*sigh*

Oh well. We will find out eventually.

I watched the game on the Fox feed unfortunately, I hope your info is true because I like #77 better.

It came straight from Oates' mouth, so I hope it's true too. I wouldn't trust anything on the website though, until Oates is actually in an Oiler uniform.

Gene said "One last question. What number?", and Oates replied "77".

That was on the ppv last night or something very very close. I watched it also. Oates stated he'd be wearing #77.

Hopefully November 26 against Detroit in Detroit. That's what was said on Sportsnet last night.
