    If NHL says YES to replacements players, what #s would they wear? Say for example, with Oilers, can replacement player wear #94?

    Of course.

    In fact, they should just wear the exact same jerseys, don't even bother to take the old names off. Much easier for the announcer, he can just say "Smyth over the blue line"...

    Not to mention half the fans wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
    "Gee, Smyth looks shorter, but he's sure playing well this season!" :lol

    Don't you mean "Smyth over the orange line" ;)

    Heck...they can wear #99 if they want. Haven't your heard this is the dawning of a new league. Nothing from the past matters. That was the Bad NHL. Now the owners have figured out how to create the Good NHL.

    :lol That would be an honest way to do it. We are watching someone replace our players, until our players return to our team right. Replacements are temporary players we can discard at will. Mercenary pawns to do the owners bidding.

    Considering the same guys that produced the "watching-paint-dry" NHL are in charge of creating the "New NHL," it's best not to get your hopes up. The result will probably be the "New watching-paint-dry NHL."

    So what happens when "Martin Brodeur" is leading the ScabHL in goals?

    Send in the clones!

    I think they can use ALMOST any number. For obvious reasons, certain numbers should be untouchable.

    no

    A new league would be the NHLPA's offering.
