What number does JvR wear next season?

The newest Leaf JvR has wore the number 21 from his USA development days to team USA, also with the UNH and with the Flyers. Next season, the number he's grow with has been "honoured" with his new franchise. What number will JvR wear or will the team ask Salming/Baun for permission? He would probably be the most worthy of all that have wore it after Baun and Salming (John Pohl?).
thoughts?

I think he'll wear #21. If John Pohl can wear it, why not JVR?

The number is honoured, not retired.

Leafs haven`t retired a number in decades. Not sure if there planning on changing that either.

Why would they? What's the point in wasting a perfectly good number by retiring it? The player is the one being honored. The number is just a quick way to identify them. It's not like anyone is going to mix up JVR with Salming or Baun or Pohl.

There's a reason the Leafs "honour" numbers, not retire them.
