There you go.
Sakic = 91
Gagne = 21
Thornton = 97
Bertuzzi = 14 (my favorite number)
Lecavalier = 40
Brad Richards 39
Vinny Lecavalier 40
At least Marty got his number.
Lecavalier kinda got the shaft on the number, I wonder who gets to choose those?
what a shaft to sakic...i know they want to honour yzerman but common I've always waited for the day sakic wears 19 on a team canada jersey.
any other countries release their numbers yet?
Blake has been there longer. I suspect that's why he got the 4.
Sakic has worn 91 a number of times in the past and Iâ€™m sure felt no need to change.
In terms of the numbers for Team Canada.....There is only 1 person who has an absolutely questionable number that no one knows where it may have come from and that's Lecavalier (# 40).
As long as I can remember, when Sakic dons the Canadian colors it's a #91 on his back, Richards wear 39 when playin nationally also.
I'd assume it goes by seniority, and as for Lecavalier, he shouldn't be wearing a defenseman's number to begin with, he deserves 40
