Steve Graves! He played 35 games for the Oilers, making him one of the Oilers' most successful draft picks of the 1980s. The's the first Oilers #15 that I can recall, although others like Kent Nilsson, Geoff Courtnall, and Marty "Thermoblades" Reasoner wore it briefly as well.

#29 as he's said a few times now that he loved the player who used to wear it back in Germany. So I assume if he gets a choice and no one has it, he'll get it.

I went with 92 for his birth year. I don't like 71. 29 seems OK.

Can't wait to buy his jersey once they release his number, last time I bought a player's jersey before he played an NHL game was Hall, hopefully it pans out just as well.

Not the 90s or early 2000s anymore where it was the **** to pick a high number. That classic haircut and a *****in >30 number.

29 is pretty slick, nobody uses with authority it since Felix Potvin.

Who was the Oilers best big center that was a slow skater and wasn't a bust? I'll vote for that #.

Double digits are supposed to be lucky, and also are an easy claim to fame for many:

Messier 11
Bossy 22
Lemiuex 66
Bourque 77
Lindros 88
Gretzky 99

I know Pronger, Niinimaa were both 44's and both were pretty damn good Oilers. So, personally, I vote for 33 with 55 being runner up. Although, great Oilers with those numbers? I can't recall...

But: for vote purposes, picked 29. 33 or 55 are both very unlikely options to be picked.

McSorley rocked the 33. I think Ulanov had 55. Both are most often defense numbers.

He wants 29.

He said the numbers he received internationally were just given to him, apparently he uses #29 because there was a player using that number on his Dads old team in Germany who he was a fan of. That number is his preference. The INTL numbers mean nothing to him.

Seeing 29 gets me a little excited, reminds me of Weight.
