Maybe they can split the number, each wearing one of the ones? I know 1 is retired, but 11 cut in half isn't.

 

Plus, 24 should be an unofficially off-limits number, because of Probert, and...who was it, Chelios? Not saying Alfredsson's a ******, just saying, why not pick a number that he can kind of make his own? Like, I dunno, 92 or something.

Instead of wearing #24 he should wear number #91

Um I'm with Dabura, 92 would be spiffy.

And it appears Alfie with stay with #11 now.  Isn't it always about the money?

 

Hearing that for marketing reasons, Daniel Alfredsson will remain no. 11 with #RedWings. Things already produced for Winter Classic, etc.

Hope this means that Cleary will be able to channel Malkin.
