Conklin wore 29 for most of his Bulldog career, but Haakana had 29 when Conks officially became an NHLer.
I remeber talking to him about that in the sumer interview... he said he didn't want to fight Haakana for it. Then this fall it was Rocky Thompson who had #29 in camp and I asked Ty again and he said "I REALLY don't want to fight HIM for it!"
Funny guy. I know he also said he didn't want to wear #1 though so I'm not too sure why he still is. Then again, raffi told me he was going to wear #96 this year and he's still got #14 on his back so I guess numbers don't always matter too much.
