Ryder takes #73, Gallagher now #11

They switched numbers

Edit: maybe now some of you can stop crying...

I wont be surprised if Gallagher had no say in picking number 73 and had no problem picking back number 11. "New guy in Town" Ryder has played more games with the Canadiens than Gallagher.

I think you care more about it than Gallagher.

Besides, vet unwritten rule is usually that he gets the number he wants. In some cases (Boullion) he turns it down.

I see it as a sign of respect from a rookie to a veteran. I'm sure it helps Ryder feel welcome into the team as well....and its just a number, no need to go crazy.

As far as we know maybe Gallagher offered his number to Ryder.

Gallager's true number is 11, there is no jackass move here.

Jackass move?

Gallagher wore #11 with the Giants...he probably only wore #73 in camp cuz the Habs always give their young prospects who are not expected to make the team high numbers.

The team letting Gallagher take a low number like 11 now means they probably see him as an established NHLer now.

Ryder's NHL number has always been #73.

Non-issue.

I use to have a Ryder t-shirt. I can't find it now! I think I gave it to the less fortunate.
a foster kid now has a relevant hockey t-shirt. Good for him!

Gallagher wore #11 in juniors, I guarantee he didn't want #73 in the first place...

Um....



Gallagher couldn't take #11 right away because wasn't Gomez still on the team? I'm sure Brendan is happier now anyway.

Has it ever happened that a player changed numbers during the season? Usually its in the offseason

Indeed, he wore #11 with the Giants.
#73 was assigned to him just like a 'high' number is pretty much always assigned to rookies during training camp.

Not wanting to stir up crap BUT speculating about Ryder being a jackass? You should be a sport journalist.

To be honest, if there's one guy on the team that I'm happy he wears #11, it's Gallagher.

I think Desharnais changed his number.
Didn't Plekanec also change his number during the season?

I can understand the misunderstanding by the OP, but as everyone else has said, this is a non-issue.

Still not used to seeing anyone else wear the Habs 11, but Gallagher will do it better than Gomez did, that's for sure

11 is a much sexier number anyways. Just be more like Koivu and less like Gomez please.

Think Ryan O'Byrne did it from 3 to whatever his number was after

Euh I hate number 11 for a winger. Always thought this number is better for a center. I dont know maybe because I was used seeing this number on the back of Muller and Koivu's jerseys for years (and Gomez of course )

Me too. Couldn't be happier. I was on the verge of changing the name bar to Gallagher. What a waste that would have been.
