Who will wear what number?

Recommended Posts

Melichar - #99

Pitkanen - #10

Babchuk - #00

:lol:

It's ALL guessing at this point..unless they have a history with a certain number. This could be a VERY long thread. IMHO...let's just wait and see...

I have hear that the NHL has Melichar listed as wearing #2. Well, we know that want happen as it is being retired. So, here are my predictions:

Melichar - #9

Pitkanen - #25

Babchuk - #48

Any thoughts?

Well we know two of them, it's just melichar we don't know. Isn't it true that players can't wear 9 cause Gordie howe played for the whalers?

Well, I did not know that trivia. Of course, I got into hockey after moving to Raleigh in 2000.

Then I change my guess to #45 (4+5=9)

The only #s the new players cannot wear are 2(Wesley), 3(Chiasson), 9(Howe), and 10(Francis). And of course, any # worn by a current player, unless they want to give it up. I think the new guys will wear:

Melichar - #22 (since #2) isn't available

Babchuk - #48 (wore it 2 seasons ago), could possibly go for #6 if he wants a low # that's now open

Pitkanen - #25 (he wore that in EDM)

Leighton - #41 (wore it last year)

any particular reason you would like to bring the Great One's number out of retirement for Melichar? :blink: or are you just ignorant?

He was just joking around because those numbers can not be worn.

Leighton wore #49. I agree with your other predictions.

Also what number will Sutter wear now that Samsonov has 14?

Melichar can also be #32 can't he? No one is using that number or #62 as well Boulerice isn't here anymore. I thought he couldn't wear #22 because Commodore took that number with him.

30's are kind of for goalies IMO, with the occasional exception of 29 or some other random number.
