The Greatest to Wear the Number

Courtesy of Hockey Recap, a link to a list of the greatest players to ever wear each uniform number.

Why now? Well, it seems that a rookie made the Montreal Canadiens club this season and is sporting number 84, which was the last number from double-zero to 99 not to be worn regularly during a season.

For the record, I heartily approve of #21, Stan Mikita (my all-time favorite), and Caps fans will be pleased to see Dale Hunter at #32 and Olaf Kolzig at #39. Good list, and sure to start some serious arguments.

1 Cam Neeley should enjoy being the best #8 while he can.

3 I thought your favorite player was Maurice Richard. ;-)

I can have fun with this list, in a torture Victor kind of way, when I go through saying "Oh, I saw him play...oh yeah, saw him too...I have his autograph..."

5 If Michele is really in NYC, then her favorite player must be Gump Worsley.

6 Sean Pronger? SEAN PRONGER?

C'mon. Am I the only other person to EVER wear 54 while playing hockey (other than SEAN PRONGER)!?

7 I'm sorry Michele, but I don't think there's a single NY player on that list.
