It must suck for all the people who jumped the gun and customized a #91 Brad Richards jersey on NHL.com.

And Rupp with #71 is kinda strange.

Hey EC does care about something! Rumor has it he re-did his house this year, and actually requested that they painted each of the rooms a different color, just as long as they are from this color pallet....

Pretty sure Rupp wore 17 in Pitt, thus the 71.

Won't be wearing 17 in NY!

Going back to those who mentioned Kreider with 20. With Tim Erixon becoming a Ranger before Kreider (we all assume). Think Tim honors his father with 20? Or stays with what he wore in Sweden, which I believe was 44.

007 - I remember the Rangers from the late 80s until Gretzky, no one ever wore the "flashy" numerals. Petr Nedved took 93 and then we started seeing many of the higher numbers appear.

Grachev wore 91 last year as a rookie.

Not that I don't think it's funny, because I know the context for all the EC jokes (and I don't care if he ever plays for us again) but it's a little amusing to me that Fedetenko is "the man" because he gave Richards his number but just because of the wording with EC he's the complete opposite of the man for being a good guy and letting Fedetenko have a favored number as well.

Meanwhile, Rupp wearing 71 is going to annoy me all year. I understand he wore 17 and flipping it around is common practice when a preferred number is taken, but a grinder like Rupp wearing 71 is flat out awkward.

Brashear wore 87 and that annoyed the crap out of me


71 is a weird hockey number

He hasn't been resigned, so as far as I'm concerned, he is.

I'm excited to see Richards go back to #19. As a Tampa resident, I've seen him put up his best numbers with 19 on his back.

Let's hope he continues.

I guess I'm in the minority here with Rupp taking 71... I love it, favourite looking number, glad someone is wearing it. Also don't care about "sniper" numbers or "grinder" numbers.

True, I forgot about Eminger, sorry Steven. I expect him to be resigned too, dunno how others feel about him.

How can you just give up Scott Gomez's 19??? Retire the jersey!

Classless. Scott Gomez is a saint. He got you Ryan McDonagh!
