Who will wear what number?

Recommended Posts

Did Jeff Daniles wear 3 before or after Chiasson died? I wonder if, though not retired, if they out of respect would ask that no one wear 3 any more?

Before. Daniels wore 11 his last years with the Canes.

Melichar with #22. So he is the one to take over the Hill/Commodore penalties :P

Maybe Babchuk wants a new start in Raleigh so he's ditching the #48.

FYI, Sutter was wearing #16 last week.

OK, let's talk about Sutter's number. I feel it will be 16 since I can only remember it being on the 3rd/4th line anyway... :lol:

Can he bring it out of the cellar and make it a permanent number in the top 6?

When did Babchuk wear number 9? If I recall correctly, no player has worn number 9 since the great Gordie Howe played for Hartford as the number was retired (Just no banner in the RBC Center).

Do you mean as in the Canes aren't going to reissue the number? I really don't think that is the case, but I wholly doubt someone is crazy enough to wear that number next year. There will be another #26 on this team eventually, just like every other un-retired number. It just won't be for awhile since no player wants to take the number of a recently traded fan favorite and take the beating from the fans/media for it.

If you meant he's wearing 26 in Edmonton sorry I misconstrued your post.

sorry, I'm just now reading this. No what I was referring to is Erik Cole will wear the #26 in Edmonton. I'm totally aware that someone will eventually wear #26, but I'd hope they'd have enough sense not to have someone wear it this season. Talk about some ticked off fans.

If I remember hearing correctly, since it wasn't officially retired, I believe they just hinted toward the players to stray away from it.

You're correct. Perhaps in his native-homeland-league he wore it and when he arrived with the Canes he wanted it, but they sorta said no, so he changed it to 48.

Has anyone heard what Tim Gleason's new number will be this year? I had ordered a Gleason jersey from the Eye last week and got a call on friday that he would be changing his number in the next couple of weeks. Glad they called and gave me the option of putting my order on hold until his new number is announced.

He better not be changing his number, I just got his jersey in April with the 42 on it. Maybe they are confused with him changing his number last year when Cullen came back on board and he went from 8 to 42. I can't see or can think of any reason why he would change his number, its not like any of the new guys want 42 as they have already picked their numbers.

I just spoke with the lady from the Hurricanes this morning. Based on my conversation with her he is definitely changing his number. Not sure why, but I told her to put my order on hold until he makes his new number official.

No actual confirmation or anything, but my guess is that he'll be wearing the number 6.

Also, he really seemed to respect Hedican and loved being paired with him, so my guess is that he probably talked it over with Bret and is wearing it as a sort of "tribute" to him.

You bring up a good point here. I remember when he was playing on the USA team this summer, he wore number 6 and I thought that it was probably for Hedican. I didn't know he previously wore it, so that makes the case even stronger for him wearing that number. I'd put my money on 6.

Has anyone changed a number on their jersey? If he does change to 6, somehow I'll have to get mine changed to 6. I for sure am not buying a new one. He needs to stop switching numbers and I'll be sure to tell him that when I see him. :P

Why don't you just keep the 42? Not every jersey has to be completely up to date- or you could add a plus sign between them...

:lol: thats right 4 + 2 = 6

I was just coming back to edit that I would keep 42 if he changes. This way it'll be known to others that I jumped on the Gleason wagon before others ;)

I have a #42 Gleason, and it's staying that way. Besides, 42 is the answer to the Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

WAS Tanabe's number... is he officially gone? I have not heard...

What I understand is that he failed 3 consecutive concussion evaluations. I was told that if you failed that many in a row you were not allowed to play anymore.

Anyway, JR is looking to buyout is contract so that means he will not be back even if he remains on the team. There are only so many roster slots and they are all taken this year.

So...YES, he is gone!

I asked the guys at the little Eye if they could do a Gleason jersey with Velcro numbers. :lol:
