It really looks like we are icing a bunch of back up training camp players

whats the problem with giving them their numbers at camp and if they make the team they keep it... Kadri 91 Komorov 87 etc...
Burke must have been confused about the Honoured Numbers tradition they have going on...

I'm surprised Kulemin hasn't switched to 14, his number everywhere else. Obviously couldn't have it when he came because Stajan had it, maybe something to do with Keon?


Also, Kadri should go with 91. 43 is just an awful hockey number.

JVR -21
Holzer- 55
Kostka -53
Fraser -45
Komorav -47
McClement - 11
Was hoping for Komorav to do the 87 thing.

what happens when all they ugly numbers are taken because players want to keep the number that got them to the nhl from training camp?

Training camp players will get numbers 1-30 lol

it's a joke

45 Fraser
47 Komarov
51 Gardiner
53 Kostka
55 Holzer

What a numerically fugly team.
Bozak use to wear 21, but it's taken now by JVR. So he'd have to pick a new # anyway.
Kulie no idea whats up with him not going to 14, maybe he just got use to it, it sort of grew on me.
Kadri at 91 would be dope.
Fraser use to do 2 and use to do 33, 45 is fine.
Komarov obviously with 87 would of been cool
Gardiner use to rock 8, 19 and 18. I'm starting to like the 51 though.
Kostka use to rock 21 and 28, both taken.
Holzer use to have 38, but imo 55 looks good.

Bozak has been here for years though, so he should have switched to 21 ages ago...
Kulemin would look nicer with 14, agreed.
Kadri, ditto
Komarov, yes 87 would have been a funny troll on Crosby
Gardiner, how about 15 as our offensive defenseman?

Weird Kadri never used 91 with the Marlies. Obviously wearing 13 would be a little taboo right now but 43 is just terrible.
