Yes he did. So did Tomas Holmstrom at one point.

...forgot that Sheahan wore it, but even so, until him, it's been since Jason Woolley that anyone has worn it? It's a great number, not like it's an odd ball one...I remember Holmstrom wearing it and IMO, he should have kept it. Looked and still looks much better than 96...maybe 15 is reserved for the call-up position and only used until the player chooses another number...

anyhow, Alfie in #11 is a given, Weiss should take #29 (if #15 is Sheahan's...)

I think the Wings are leaving #29 open for someone's eventual return :glare:

Homer gave it up for Mironov. After that it was worn by Gill, Golubovsky, Verbeek, Kohn, Woolley, and Langfeld.

Yeah, but then we wouldn't have the great story about what Scotty said to him about the number 96.

..It's a great number, not like it's an odd ball one...I remember Holmstrom wearing it and IMO, he should have kept it. Looked and still looks much better than 96...maybe 15 is reserved for the call-up position and only used until the player chooses another number...

Former Detroit Red Wings coach Scotty Bowman once asked Tomas Holmstrom why he chose to wear No. 96.

“That's the year I came here from Sweden,'' Holmstrom said.

“We'll, you should have picked 98,'' Bowman told him, “because that's the year you're going back.''

Bowman loved to needle Holmstrom, but he could take it.

Ugh I just don't like the number 15 and I honestly have no reason for it. Well I guess my reason is I just don't like the look of it. For some reason when Weiss signed I thought he would have 29 as well, also have no idea where that came from either. Any particular reason my brain would associate Weiss with 29?

If he and Sammy are on the wings, who comes back as the retread centre men?

Boyd?

Ha!

Isn't it customary to give the number to the guy who has been in the league longer?

It's looking less and less like Cleary will be back, so it likely won't be an issue anyway.

Yeah, this should end up a non-issue.

PS - Looking at that link, if you buy a #17 Howe jersey does that make you the ultimate hipster?

Please no on Cleary....I get all happy when I read that quote from Kenny, but I just know something is going to happen and they trade 3 forwards to allow him to come back....i just know it. Someone sign him already!!
