You'll notice all of them have a red logo on them, which is the logo of this company (a betting company).
It's pretty much just advertising for one of the SM-liiga's biggest sponsors.
This is much better IMO than the horrible NLA top scorer.

There's also the "kultainen kypärä" (golden helmet) which is an award for the best player in the SM-liiga.
It's this:
I know a lot of SM-Liga fans and players don't like the gold helmet, but I think it's at least interesting. At the very least it is one of those quirks that make different leagues and hockey cultures identifiable.

I am going to crack up if Leino wears 17, 19, or 71.

It would be awesome seeing a blue and gold jersey with #89 again, but I doubt he does it.

I'm in the opposite corner. I'd hate it because that number deserves to be retired, even though it isn't at the moment.

Disclaimer: This was discussed before, and I'm not a huge fan of retiring numbers and on merit perhaps Mogilny's shouldn't be based on longevity, but considering that Lafontaine has his number retired, I believe Mogilny deserves his to be.

I too think it would be cool to see #89 worn again, but to respect Mogilny and what he did while he was here, I think that number worn by anyone else wouldn't look right. Same thing with Hasek's #39 and even more so. Both deserve retirement IMO but it would be cool to see them worn again for nostalgia's sake, except being worn by anyone different would be just wrong.

I'm predicting Leino goes with #23. I think a teen number would be cool. Not sure I'm ready to have someone else wear #19 yet, but #15 hasn't been used in a long time. Whatever Leino chooses, I hope he doesn't choose #17. I firmly believe that number's cursed now.

I saw a Leino jersey in the Galleria Mall the other day and i'm pretty sure i saw it as #10.

They also had Ehrhoff at #5 and Regehr at #24

I think I'd most like to see #23. Let's wipe away the last memories of Drury and start fresh.

Part of me wants him to come way out of left field and take like #78 or something.

Wearing 89 in Buffalo would be a pretty ballsy move. I know it's not retired, but...

If Leino puts up 90+ points next year then he can take #89 if he wants it. I wouldn't want to give just anyone that number

(and no I'm not expecting even close to 90+ pts from him, settle down)

Sounds like someone is recycling their old Tallinder /Lydman jerseys.

Yep, got that at 9:00 am today too - jerseys to be made shortly

Also Regehr is sticking with #24 and Ehrhoff is #10 (take that China knock offs!)
