I wonder what the holdup is...I see Weiss has #90

I saw that earlier too, but it's not on the Red Wings website anymore......

If you have to ask, you've never witnessed the glory that is Dmitry Mironov.

They're prepping it for retirement the same night Lidstrom gets his retired  :bye:

Maybe they made him choose another because Modano spoke up on twitter lol

what the heck is up with nobody wearing #15? I first thought Danny D would take it, but no. There has to be a good reason why nobody wears it...Weiss would look good in it too...better than 90.

 

Pretty sure that Riley Sheahan wore #15 when he was up with the big club.

Yeah and I'm still upset when I see anyone else wearing it.  Totally disrespectful towards Woolley.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

"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.

...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.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

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?
