#2 for me. Fetisov was great in it for a while. Fischer was my favorite player, and now I'm digging Smith a lot now too.

This is tough. Might have to go with 13 because I won't ever get over how good Pav is but also, jurco wore 13 before he came here and he's the prospect I'm most stoked for

          1. When your moves are so amazing and beyond reason, the only way to describe them is "datsyukian."

Pavs did make 13 solid for the Wings. Saw it was #2 jersey sold this year behind Toews.

#91 - Fedorov.... Wore it my entire career, except College. Regret not wearing it there but didn't want to wear that high of a number.

Slava wasn't too bad himself.

19, for obvious reasons, second favorite, 9 for even more obvious reasons!


"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I wore 19 playing hockey until Yzerman retired, and I now get 40.  My favorite number changes as my favorite active player does.

20.  I've liked so many players who wore 20 here.  Imagine if you could put all of them together into one player.

#14 for me, Was a big Shanahan fan growing up though the glory years. The guy was everything you'd want from a player on your team with his physical play and goal scoring ability.

 

 

The things he's done for the sport and player safety I respect him for.

 

Nyquist starting to get comfortable in #14 hes really coming into his own. Hopefully he might get a chance on the 2nd line sometime in the playoffs.

22.  Dino, Tootoo, and now 22 straight playoff appearances.

11, but in a couple months it will change to 12 :)

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

6, belongs in the rafters, one of the few black marks on Mr. Illitch's legacy was taking it down in the first place.

 

Plus, Detroit is one of the Original Six, and I wore #6 in every sport I played until high school.

55 just because its my favorite number. Has to do with porter when he player with Steelers. Then kronwall now. I like big hits in both sports.


Number 2 is second fav. I'd say. I like Fischer a lot and now smith.
