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.
