Joff wore a #7 when he was playing in juniors

Sbisa's situation is interesting. He wore #47 with Philly (I'm assuming it was the number given to him in camp), and then wore #5 after being sent back to Lethbridge. If I'm not mistaken, Steve McCarthy has typically worn 5 for much of his career. With a few years of service over Sbisa, would McCarthy likely get first dibs if they both wanted it?

You could just hand either one a #55

I think 55 would be on the wrong side of the border of what's allowed for a regular here.

Wasn't that Burke's rule? Don't know if Murray feels the same about that.

He hasn't said, but he did switch Ryan's number from 54 once it was clear he made the team.

True, but I think that was more Bobby wanting #9 than anything else. Personally I think it is a silly rule. Would you tell Gretzky he can't have #99

He probably wanted 9 all along, and it was available, and they still made him wait until he made the team.

Yep...cause of Mike Modano...I remember this, because he scored that nasty coast to coast goal against Dallas and burned Modano.

I'm kinda mad Burke made Getzlaf switch. What a stupid rule. I think 51 is an awesome number. It looks cooler than 15.

Getzlafs number of choice is 15. He had to wear 51 due to Burkes rookie number rule and because of Joff.

If we could get a Kunitz-like impact out of Lupul I'd be thrilled.

First Cristensen, now this. What's the deal with players picking the numbers of former players who are pretty much the exact opposite of them?

Because it's just a number and nobody really cares?

Anyway, I figured Lupul would take 14, since it's very close and similar to 15, and I'm very glad he did. Loops was my favorite player when he left, and now he's wearing my favorite number. I figured Bobby and Getzlaf would be the next jersey I'd buy, but definitely not too sure of that now.

Apparently Koivu's wearing 11 and Boynton's wearing 4. It will take me a while to not see Bertuzzi in that #4.

Sbisa's going to wear number 1098, because **** you world.

Saku will be sporting #11. Lupes got #14 and Boynton got #4....Sbisa and McCarthy havent made the team. Expect to see Sbisa in the line up this season.
