Dickie Moore is a top-5 LW. Sid Abel is a top 20 center. Oates can be argued there also. Iginla is arguably top 15-20 RW. And the best of them all is Mike Sillinger.

Huh?

Abel wore it for a long time in Detroit.

You are correct...I was using hockey-reference.com as a source, and I didn't read the fine print (really not that fine, it's quite large) that says they only have sweater number data starting in 1950-51, so when you search for #12's it appears as if Abel only wore it for 2 seasons. I will amend my list, as he obviously belongs on there. Good chance there are some more like this out there. Anyone have any?

My favorite player for the past 10 years has been Number 12, Patrick Marleau

A fine player, and an even better person. You couldnt do much better as a role model for an athlete. Never mistake his quiet humility for a lack of passion.

I dont often, if ever, single out players on a team i love. This man is the exception.

You could at least give me a day or two to answer first!! Apart from Jarrett, that number hasn't been prominent in Seals history. You have Boom Boom Caron from 67/68, which was before I was following hockey, then it lay dormant a few years after Jarrett when the bearded Butch Williams picked it up in 74/75. Then Mike Fidler had 2 decent seasons in Cleveland with it.

Just throwing it out there as a massive fan of both, would Iginla > Oates be consensus or debatable?

I'd take Iggy over Oatsie. Happy to have either on my team, though.

Hawkey Town 18's list of 12s seems pretty solid.

Couple more HM's...
Gary Dornhoefer, Mike Keane, Brian Rolston, Duane Sutter and Ron Stewart

Smyl's my favourite 12, but he's properly rated with the HM's.

Without looking really closely, I think you can make an argument for either.
