• Per DetroitHockey.net's Clark Rasmussen, RedWingsCentral posted its list of the Red Wings' official training camp roster including the players' numbers, and some of the players' numbers will surprise you--The Wings will allow Ruslan Salei to wear #24; Aaron Downey will wear #32 this time around; Ilari Filppula will wear #41 to compliment his brother Valtteri's #51; Jakub Kindl's swapping out #46 for #4; The Wings will allow Brendan Smith to wear #2; Thomas McCollum will stick with #38, but Joey MacDonald's going back to his Curtis Joseph-inspired #31; In the "surprisingly low numbers" category, Jordan Owens will wear #15, Tomas Tatar's inheriting Ville Leino's #21, Jamie Tardif will wear #29, Brian Lashoff will wear #25, Logan Pyett snags Brett Lebda's #22, Travis Ehrhardt will wear #27 and Doug Janik will stick with #37 [DetroitHockey.net, RedWingsCentral]


Apologies if this has been posted before, and apologies if no one cares, but here you go.

I'm liking Kindl's swap to #4, and Tatar in Leino's #21. :thumbup:

Smith kinda seems like a #2 to me.

How in the hell is #22 going to be used? It was destined for the rafters!!!

Seriously, neat article.

Side note - Gonna be weird to see someone in Fischer's number. I'm not saying that #2 needed to be retired, I'm just saying that once Smith hits the big leagues, it's gonna take a couple dozen games to adjust to it.

As opposed to the Canadian Coney Island?

No. The rafters of the 'Little Caesars Center' - the new downtown Detroit rink for the Wings.

of the Air Canada Centre?

Uh-oh...

I thought they wanted to keep that number out of circulation in respect to Red Kelly?

Interesting. I guess they're starting to allow it...

But they didn't like Modano take 16? (Or was it 6?)

“I wanted No. 6, but they told me about Larry Aurie,” said Modano, referring to Aurie, who played between 1927-39, and had his number retired by former Wings owner James Norris.

“I thought it would be easy to just flip 9 to 6,” Modano said. “I would have loved 6, but maybe 90.”

I'm still waiting for somebody to go all out with numbers. Wear something like 132 or mathematical formulas like e=mc2.

Let's hope that Tomas Tatar wears #21 better than its previous owner.

I know it won't be retired but just sad to see someone other than DMAC wearing #25.

True but I think he had a different number towards the end. Didn't he change it at some point?

Quincey started in 45, switched to 4 at the end of his tenure here before waived... Bob McGill, Jamie Pushor, Uwe Krupp and Mark Howe have all worn 4 after Red as well...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Red Kelly's number has never been retired, despite the fact that he was the best defenseman in Red Wings history until Nick Lidstrom came along.

I'm pretty sure that he did. Seeing someone wear #4 for the Wings has not been a rare occurrence.
